Participants do not need to have any previous knowledge of drama.

The Storytelling Happening uses the creative processes of theatre to explore and draw out experiences of people in Northern Ireland. The inter-active drama workshop provides an opportunity for those taking part to tell their stories and uses fun theatre games and exercises to allow participants to remember and share their memories of living in Belfast. The Happening aims to acknowledge participants’ different experiences and discuss their hopes and vision for their area. 

A section of the Storytelling Workshop will be recorded on film for inclusion in a television documentary. As part of The Memory Project, Smashing Times Theatre Company is making a television documentary showing how the creative processes of drama and theatre can be used to explore memories and experiences of conflict and to promote peace and non-violence.
