Solomon Islands first ever women’s theatre company, Stages of Change, have kicked off their first ever national tour.
Their first performance was held in Honiara last Thursday.
Stages of Change project uses theatre to engage women and men in discussions about violence against women and girls, and began as an EU-British Council initiative one and a half years ago.
Working with local partners, Solomon Islands Planned Parenthood Association, a group of women from all across the Solomon Islands began intensive training with New Zealand Theatre Company, The Conch.
The group has gone on to perform and run reducing violence workshops to wide audiences throughout the Pacific.
Stages of Change performed for free in Guadalcanal and West Guadalcanal and will head to Malaita next week.
