Participants explore the effects of discrimination and learn how to challenge bullying and hate. The workshop explores the story of Matthew Shepard and why his story promoted a greater understanding of hate crime internationally.


Out and Proud

Adam Zane and company members visit primary and secondary schools and discuss coming out, challenging stereotypes and celebrating diversity. The workshop uses real life coming out stories and personal accounts to promote a greater understanding and acceptance of difference.


Verbatim Theatre

This fun and creative workshop gives participants a clear understanding of verbatim theatre and explores the challenges faced when creating and staging productions. Adam Zane and company members share their experiences and help participants explore this exciting and important style of theatre.
