APTH 320 - Theatre in Mental Health: UK


2 credit(s)
This winter-term travel course will introduce students to the Converge program, an arts and health project based at York St. John University in England. Converge makes university courses in the arts accessible to people who use mental health services. Students will learn about the UK mental health service provision, arts as a pathway to higher education, the healing potential of performance practice, and evidence for the effectiveness of arts applications in mental health, and will work on theatre skills with community members. Students will gain both experience with an established applied theatre model and understanding of the challenges and processes of applied theatre.
Prerequisite(s): THEA 110  or APTH 215 .
