Day 1: Dare you … Be yourself? Working creatively through art, storytelling and acting to identify key stories about our past, present and future that reveal our conscious beliefs and their impact on others, increasing our self-awareness and recognition of diversity amongst the group.

Day 2: Dare You … Step up and lead? Participants work together with theatre professionals to communicate their stories authentically and effectively, culminating with an evening presentation.
