Description

You the Man: a theatre-based program for bystander engagement and violence prevention

The You the Man program can form an important component of a local strategy for violence prevention by focussing on bystander engagement and violence prevention. The program has been successfully delivered in secondary schools, workplaces, sports clubs, universities and community settings across Victoria.

The program consists of a 30-35 minute play about dating violence and sexual assault plus a moderated post-performance panel discussion. The script of the play remains unchanged from performance to performance, but the format of the post-performance discussion is tailored to the local setting, circumstances, and other violence prevention activities happening locally. When delivered in a particular setting, the panel members are drawn from local support agencies, and the discussion serves to introduce people to the local resources that are available.

This event offers people, especially those who are considering bringing the program into their setting, a chance to see a performance of the play that forms the first part of the program, followed by a short Q and A session with the producer, director and actor.

Arrive from 4pm for coffee and tea, play starts at 4.15pm sharp
