Centre for Community Dialogue and Change

The Centre for Community Dialogue and Change (CCDC) is a Bangalore, India based organization for Theatre of the Oppressed. Our TO workshops enable individuals, groups and institutions, especially those in education, create change through dialogue, reflection and action.  

Our Mission is to promote the practice and use of Theatre of the Oppressed for community building, enhancing sensitivity and understanding in human interactions, encouraging and developing critical thinking and applying the insights gained to the exploration of multiple strategies for solving problems of the community. We use theatre of the Oppressed with diverse populations involved in mainstream education in India in an attempt to bring about a qualitative change in the nature of the educational process.
