Love travelling? Passionate about theatre and teaching children?
The Rickshaw Theatre Project needs you!
We are looking for enthusiastic, committed and creative people to teach/run workshops on this year’s Theatre in Education trip around India and Nepal. This is a voluntary project, which is self-funded, although we will be applying for funding from the University.
Over the last eight years groups of students have travelled to India and
Nepal in August/September visiting schools and NGOs with the aim of taking theatre to disadvantaged children and teenagers.
As a member of the team, you would be planning and running workshops, and organising performances with groups across India and Nepal.
We will be abroad for approximately 6 weeks in the summer from mid August to late September, with the opportunity for recreational travelling and other fun events in addition to the volunteer work. Any Cambridge University student is eligible to apply, whether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate, graduating or coming back next year!
The trip will be very challenging, but extremely rewarding!
Please do get in contact if you have any questions. You can reach Phoebe and Rebecca at email@example.com .
Here is a link to the last trip’s blog so you can see what we got up to: http://rtp2013.blogspot.co.uk/p/what-is-rtp-2013.html
Applications should include:
– what excites you about this project.
– Any relevant experience, although no experience is necessary.
– What difficulties do you think might arise working with kids in India and Nepal, and how would you deal with them?
– Do you have any creative ideas for games or workshops that you would like to conduct with the kids?
Application deadline is midnight Monday 20th April and applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
