Over the last few months, KWTRP’s Community Liaison Group has worked with the Jukwaa Arts Productions using a magnet theatre model to sensitize the communities/publics within Kilifi County about the Research work undertaken at the programme, to learn about community/public concerns and address these issues in real time with support from Community Liaison Group Team.To commence the engagements, two sites were identified – Mtwapa and Mida.
To enable this project to run successfully, the Jukwaa Art Production was taken through training to understand the programme’s work on research including the specific work areas that KWTRP is involved with and other information that would help them address these issues and concerns. Having completed the Mtwapa site successfully preparation are underway for Mida
The team also had an opportunity to share feedback on challenges faced from the previous Magnet Theatre activity in Mtwapa area. The two day training was facilitated by members of the Community liaison Group
One of the participant noted ‘’This training has been an eye opener… the lessons gathered from these sessions will help us during the script development , acting out and even facilitating the Magnet Theatre discussions ‘’
