Youth Theater for the Protection of Water in the Andes
Art Medium: Theater
Partner: Uma Rumi
Location: Pitumarca, Peru
The Andean mountains in Peru are an important watershed for the region. Unfortunately, due to climate change and environmental contamination, this natural resource is at risk.
Youth from the community of Pitumarca worked with a theater artist over several mouths to create solutions to this problem and educate their community through an original play. The students wrote and acted in the play in order to encourage better stewardship of the environment and the protection of their local waterways.
