This week it is SOURCE WEEK at The Feronia Project! All week we will be giving you a glimpse into the shining jewel that is The SOURCE. The SOURCE creates innovative theatre, film and videos that directly respond to the needs of youth and young adults. Award-winning, innovative, and provocative, students, educators and administrators consistently evaluate The SOURCE as one of the most effective prevention programs in the nation. The actors in The SOURCE Theatre receive extensive training in theatre, film acting, life skills, and sexuality education in order to give back to the community and the nation by becoming a “source” of life-saving information to their peers.
Aside from live theatre, The SOURCE is also known for it’s powerful and poigant public service announcements. The SOURCE and its fearless leader are never afraid to “go there.” In fact, their motto is: Saving the world – one show at a time (and you can’t save the world by being lame). As you may have read yesterday, the director of The SOURCE (who is also an accomplished writer, producer, editor, actor, and fierce mother bear) has a knack for really listening to what her youth are experiencing in their lives, and then she turns what she hears into PSA’s. Here’s a small sampling of The Feronia Project’s favorite PSA’s:
