Drama For Life

Drama For Life’s Knowledge Unzipped! initiative is an arts-based sexual health and wellness education and training project that is integrated into Wits University’s academic, research, and community engagement programmes. 

This social behavior change initiative reaches young people in schools and communities and also provides accredited courses, train the trainer models, and upper level education to Wits University students and other tertiary institutions. 

DFL’s Theatre Company harnesses the power of personal storytelling, peer to peer relationships, and arts as a language to break down walls, reduce stigma, and start honest community dialogues around sex, gender, violence, and the complicated social environment that South African teens face today.
