Theatre can be used to promote peace and reconciliation in communities recovering from conflict.

Jessica Atwooki Kaahwa

That’s the message from Dr. Jessica Atwooki Kaahwa, who teaches theatre and drama at the Makerere University in Uganda.

Dr. Kaahwa, who is also an actress and director, is celebrating World Theatre Day in Paris on March 27 at the UN Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

She told Derrick Mbatha that theatre is more than just entertainment and that it can be used to engage people to prevent problems from occurring.
