What?: Joker's International Day on Global Warming'
Where?: Mega Kidz, Mid-Valley City, Kuala Lumpur
When?: 15th of March 2008

Set up by David Diamond, socio-political activist and creative mind behind Vancouver's 'Headlines Theatre', this world-wide project was carried out in every continent around the globe. Drama Kidz was the sole representative for Malaysia, and one of the only companies involved to run the project for children. Using techniques in theatre as a method for discovery, the project was aimed at raising awareness on what global warming is, how we are causing it, and what can be done to create a change. Each group planned their own session, here is is what Drama Kidz did:

'What is 'Global warming'? An exploration of the cause, effects, and what we can change to make a better future. A workshop for 5-11 year olds involving image theater and forum theatre, based on media reports of global warming.'

The session was run by Nicole Fuchs, a recent and most talented addition to the Drama Kidz team. Having the fortune to talk with David Diamond in person, the session plan was devised in Vancouver and relayed to Nicole for her own creative input and application.

NB: In addition, I would like to thank Debra Tennant of 'Xpose Theatre' in Newcastle, UK, for her contribution towards this session. Xpose is a company practicing theatre in education, working directly with children to create new pieces of theatre dealing with the issues faced when growing up.

When?: 22nd Dec 2007
Where?: Mega Kidz, Mid Valley City, Kuala Lumpur

Party extravaganza, including a drama session run by 'Drama Kidz', based on the theme of 'Fairy Tales'. All of the children were in fancy dress, with our regular Drama Kidz members looking great (not to be bias!)! After the fancy dress parade, myself and the other judges had a hard time in deciding on the winners, luckily we had prepared around 30 prizes!

This day was also my birthday, thanks again for the cake Grace!
