The Life Drama Project makes use of applied theatre & performance techniques to promote sexual health & wellbeing in Papua New Guinea, the Pacific and Northern Australia.

Sustainability and Transportability

4.5 Sustainability and Transportability

The pilots of Life Drama in a highlands area and a coastal area show that the principles of the project are transportable. Individual activities must be tailored to reflect the performance ecology of the site, but the performative and qualitative evidence from the trials indicates that all activities in the Life Drama Bilum are likely to be appropriate and meaningful across sites. Logistics of implementation will vary from site to site, but the basic requirements of the program remain consistent and therefore transportable.

In-country capacity-building and partnership development will be vital to the sustainability of Life Drama as an educational approach to sexual health in PNG in the long term.
