Project ACT launches province-wide school tour
Project ACT is an interactive forum theatre presentation that helps students in grades 7-9 recognize and overcome the barriers that prevent them from leading active, healthy lives. Developed in collaboration with youth and community partners from across Ontario, the presentation focuses on physical activity, healthy eating and substance misuse prevention. The workshop was created by Mixed Company Theatre, with support from the Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion’s Healthy Communities Fund. Schools and community centres seeking to engage youth are encouraged to contact Mixed Company to book a Project ACT performance during its tour of the province from September through December 2010.
