FRC in collaboration with the Legal Aid Commission of Sri Lanka and Act4: Theatre for Change conducted several forum theatre performances in the North Central and Eastern provinces from the 3rd to the 12th of September 2015. The performances are part of an innovative approach to creating community awareness on the legal rights and responsibilities of citizens in upholding human dignity, and the need for rehabilitating survivors of trauma.
The significant number of participants at the performances included local residents of communities in the areas as well as civil society representatives and representatives from the Human Rights Commission and The Legal Aid Commission. It was encouraging to note the enthusiasm and appreciation of participants in all locations at which the performances took place.
