The basis for this is The Ottawa Charter and The Jakarta Declaration. To reference this in a New Zealand context we refer you to The Health Promotion Forum.
Our programmes are:
Free of charge to ensure accessibility (or for a fee if you don't meet our eligibility criteria).
Designed to complement schools’ ongoing health programmes, using drama as a tool for learning.
Ideally placed to work within the Health Promoting Schools framework and other programmes.
The Trust also has an Artistic Consultation Group. Although we are not a bi-cultural theatre company per se, we are committed to understanding and honouring our partnership through Te Tiriti O Waitangi and create our programmes with, by and for tangata whenua. We are also commited to addressing issues of Mãori and Pacific Island health in a positive, non-judgemental and affirming way.
