Dr. Rama Mani is the Founder of Theatre of Transformation Academy, a non-profit association aiming at the champion of the emerging creative power of humanity to shape our shared future. Rama developed ‘Theatre of Transformation’ as a catalytic art form and transformative methodology, based on her 30 years of global and grassroots experience in peacebuilding, justice, strategic leadership and global governance.

This intriguing, interactive and experiential Theatre of Transformation workshop invites us to examine critical sustainability and the Earth Emergency with new eyes. It invites us to experience the consequences of climate crisis directly through our bodies, and to transform it through our individual and collective creativity. Program details can be found here.

In October 2021, Rama already held a workshop at the Institute of Geography in Bern on “Transforming Margins: from Health Systems to a Healthy Planetary Society through the lens of the Theatre of Transformation Methodology”. Impressions of the workshop can be found here.
