Run Zombie, Run was a cultural mapping and volunteering project by ‘stealth’.
By using ‘an interactive zombie theatre experience’ as a medium to explore concepts of community (and its resources), participants learnt how to creatively determine new opportunities for themselves and for others.
From November 2014 – May 2015, young people aged 11-18 worked with facilitator Claire Glenn to create and present the Zombie Gauntlet.
The participants of Run Zombie, Run are continuing to work together (along with some new faces) as the Kids Against Humanity Ensemble.
Run Zombie, Run and Zombie Gauntlet were presented as part of the ExpressWay Arts DISCOVERY project. The Department for Communities and Social Inclusion contributed funds to the DISCOVERY project.
ExpressWay Arts is an initiative of Carclew undertaken jointly with City of Onkaparinga and assisted by Government of South Australia through Arts South Australia.
