Introducing the Wildcard WorkbookJul. 05, 2022
There are so many wonderful books about Theatre of the Oppressed out there. However, on our practice we wished for a book we couldn’t yet find: a truly accessible, visual, and interactive guide that could prepare us to work with a community in real-time. A book we could write in, rip pages from, and use over and over again. So we wrote it! The Wildcard Workbook: A Practical Guide for Jokering Forum Theatre is a +200 page illustrated interactive guide to support creative advocacy and role play facilitation in various contexts. Included is a week-by-week guide, flow charts, games, stories, and more! We hope you'll scribble in the margins, tear out the pages, and challenge the ideas within, on your way to using embodied play and imagination toward social action! Written by Sulu LeoNimm, Elizabeth Morgan, and Katy Rubin. Created in collaboration with the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) and design by Shreyas R Krishnan and Kruttika Susarla of SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT. Made with financial support from the New York Community Trust.
To introduce the book to our community, we're hosting two events on July 28, 2022. Please join us! See the following links for details.
