COMMUNITIES & COVID19
COVID19 has challenged the world in unprecedented ways. The ongoing pandemic has been evolving rapidly, with individuals, communities, businesses, governments and scientists forced to adapt to an ever-changing landscape. There have been countless voices, sometimes helpful and sometimes conflicting.
With the support of the Grange Big Local, we are seeking to apply our theatre methodology to highlight community voices and untangle the complex issues and concerns which the COVID19 pandemic has triggered, to improve individuals' wellbeing and facilitate science communication.
Please join our project and add your voice to this exciting conversation.
Acting for Health (AFH) is looking for local residents to join a new and exciting community theatre project online in the time of COVID19.

JOIN THE PROJECT
Acting for Health uses a unique methodology and theatre activities to tackle some of public health’s toughest challenges, from diseases of poverty in rural Africa to mental health. Now Acting for Health is coming to East Finchley to highlight local communities’ experiences of the current COVID19 pandemic.
We are looking for volunteer participants over the age of 18 from across the community to join in an online community theatre project about COVID19. Anyone can apply, as long as you are able to take part in several online sessions using Zoom (with camera on), have a good internet connection and are able to commit to all of the five project sessions. As this is a community theatre project, these are voluntary positions (there will be no payment for your participation).
This project will lead to the creation of a short fiction film, filmed on zoom! This will also be an enriching, exciting and important opportunity to share and learn from others in your community about experiences and opinions on the COVID19 pandemic. You will be directly involved in a project trying to improve our understanding of COVID19's impact and providing innovative tools to help others in your immediate community.
In practice, this will consist of five 90-minute sessions to be held on Zoom between March 2021 and May 2021
- five online group sessions leading to a short film, recorded on Zoom
- and an online film screening!
All sessions will take place online using Zoom so you can participate from the comfort of your home.
