MIRSSA Mental Wellness Forum

On September 25th, 2015, Manitoba Immigrant and Refugee Settlement Sector Association hosted a forum to explore mental wellness needs and resources in the newcomer community. Red Threads of Peace was invited to perform as the last activity of their day. Seventy-five participants reflected on both personal and professional experiences they have had in Canada. The opportunity to pause and celebrate the insights they have had through the playback performance was appreciated as part of closing their day. Some feedback from the evaluation forms included:
Playback Theatre was my favourite!
Playback Theatre: Great experiences, networking, service coordination. Great to see those emotions expressed in characters.
