Mukura Community Theater Performance, 16 Sept. 2011

On September 16th, 2011, the Justice and Reconciliation Project facilitated survivors and families of those killed in the 1989 Mukura massacre to hold a community theatre performance on a transitional justice issue of their choice. The performance was part of our ongoing engagement with the Mukura Memorial Development Initiative, or MUMEDI, and the Kumi Network of Development Organizations, KUNEDO, and aimed at generating discussion among the community on how to best seek justice and reconciliation after the conflict in the area. The drama’s script and theme was entirely drafted by the actors.

This drama is also part of a community theater pilot program through JRP’s Community Mobilization department. Other similar performances have been facilitated in Lukodi, Abia and Yumbe, and videos will be posted in the coming weeks.
