#WeRCreativeCorps

Welcome to Creative Corps! And our launch project -

YEAR ONE: Creativity, Community, Action In Response To The Immigration Crisis

The goal of this first year’s project is two-fold.

1) To counter the dehumanization of immigrants and refugees
2) To insist on the reunification of every single child imprisoned by the US government with their family members (be it parent, sibling or other blood relative) as a national priority

(The following material is offered free. However, we would like to know you so we can track where this project is being done, answer any questions, share your experiences for greater impact and learn from you. Please contact us at info@theglobaltheatreproject.org. If you are not a US citizen, the script below can be altered to reflect your national concerns. Do contact us so we can discuss this. In Addition, there is an Italian version of the plays available.)

All the tools you need are here.

But the most important of them is your inspired motivation to heal our communities and our world.

Much of the illness mankind now faces is that we no longer trust our neighbors, we have become so self-focused that we are missing the point: human beings thrive and succeed when we work together and help one another. Here is our contribution.

If you are . . .

A theatre company
A group of actors who can offer this event to your community
A church, synagogue, mosque, temple
A meditation center, yoga studio
A university, college, high school
A business, club, arts center
A YMCA or JCC
A person with a dining room and a table . . .

. . . this event is designed to be done by you and done simply. It is a participatory event inspired by the Passover Seder and requires no more than 1 rehearsal. (Although you are welcome to get as elaborate as you like!) The event can be done for 10 people or 50 people. As you can see from the photos below:

Again, we are looking to build a community of caring, active people through creative outreach and activism in our communities. This is the beginning of what we hope will be a long, healthy and creative relationship together.
