Learn GeriActors’ playful theatre & storytelling approach
in our Facilitator Training program.

Design and deliver workshops that inspire playfulness, foster community, stimulate storytelling, and develop plays that can be shared with others. Perfect for actors, educators, healthcare providers, and recreation professionals with an interest in community-based theatre.

At the end of the program, participants will have the opportunity to facilitate their own workshop, for which they will be paid, and put into practice what they have learned.

Training will have a particular reference to seniors, but our approach can be adapted for work with any community.

Training Dates: June 1, 8, 15, 16 from 12:00PM to 4:30PM
Program Fee: $155 per person

Bursaries available:

GeriActors strives to ensure programs are accessible to all. We have a limited number of bursaries available to assist with program fees.

To be considered for a bursary please submit a letter (max 250 words) indicating your interest and experience in theatre, community arts, or senior’s recreation, and how facilitator training will benefit you and/or your community. Letters can be emailed to by May 15.

Bursaries have been made possible through the support of the University of Alberta Drama Department. Preference will be given to University of Alberta students and alumni, but available to anyone who has demonstrated an interest and ability.
