GETheatre is looking for Teaching Artists-in-Training for the 7th year of our annual GETIndia program, which will take place in early January 2017!

Some of our past in-country partners for this program include: The Parikrma Humanity Foundation (Bangalore), TEACH FOR INDIA (Pune) and The Akanksha Foundation (Mumbai).

Visit the GETIndia page on our website for more information on the history of this exciting program!

Teaching Artists-in-Training can expect to: work independently with small groups of students, lead large group activities, work one-on-one with students to improve writing skills, type up scripts, run errands, photograph or video tape workshops/performances and offer their enthusiasm to learn and jump in where ever help is needed. This is an incredible opportunity to gain practical experience working in a developing nation, while using theatre to explore identity, social justice issues, facilitate English literacy, and develop cross-cultural connections.

All of this creates a fuss.
To sort it out a solution is a must.
Fine. We’ll do what society wants us to.
Depressed souls, what good will it do?
Doing what you love is the essence of life.
This is what will help the society to rise.
Cuz, doing what you love and loving what you do,
Is definitely a privilege for only a few.
This life is yours and no one else can rule.
Don’t just blindly follow society and be a fool.
Come out of your hole. Stop being mice.
Stand for your decision. Make your own choice!
