Summary Forum theatre can help students to explore personal and collective challenges in their lives. It enables them to share their views and fears and develop their social, emotional and creative skills. This book demonstrates how forum theatre can develop children's sense of solidarity, belonging, problem-solving, constructive protest and community membership, as well as give them a way to experiment with roles and find real-life solutions to personal and shared challenges
