Three participatory theatre and body mapping sessions in North and East for conflict affected women

The first session was held in Vavuniya with 22 conflict affected women on 21st and 22nd September and the second session in Batticaloa was held on 2nd and 3rd October with 25 conflict affected women. CEJ commissioned drama therapist Ms. Tehani Chitty to conduct the sessions. The sessions focused on engaging and releasing aggression and stress, exploring the self through the five senses, exploring the 4 basic emotions through art and the body, self- compassion and exploring participants’ connection to the community. The workshops provided women with a space to express themselves.
