In this section you can get ideas and inspiration to rethink forum plays into a longer process, where you can keep working with the topics after the forum play session. This can be done by including digital media and technology as the Actvise project has done.
Traditionally, forum plays end after the evaluation, leaving the individual responsible for any other processing, reflection and post-activity. Since we are working with young people, it is recommended that they are supported in beginning the process of reflection and self awareness.
A set of post-activities immediately after the event is therefore advisable. It could be carried out days or weeks after the plays, and could consist of class discussions, new play solutions or other ways of tackling the presented situation (issue or dilemma).
In the Forum Theatre project, we propose the incorporation of digital media to aid such a process, both because it allows young people to work regardless of time and place, and because it is media and technology already familiar to them.
