Facilitation had always been a long-term goal for Aagaaz. As an organization, we believe in the transformative power of the arts and hope to be able to create livelihoods around it. A few of the core group members from Nizamuddin have therefore been involved in a ‘facilitator’s apprenticeship’. This is a structured programme where they learn how to design and conduct workshops for children and adults.
Currently, these young people are exploring facilitation around theatre, play-based learning and sexual and reproductive health. They are also on a special stipend, which is helping them pave their way into professional work of this kind.
Pehchaan Learning Centre, The Community Library Project- Sheikh Sarai and Delhi Public School- Srinagar, are some of the spaces where we have offered facilitated sessions/workshops.
