We are a community theatre company previously running weekly drama workshops at the One Community Centre in Lincoln Green. We have had to pause all face-to-face activity and move our projects online.

We need help with the following activities:

• Design a Mafwa Newsletter every 2 months
• Research online creative opportunities in the region
• Find opportunities for us to share work we've created, such as our short film
• Help to carry out monitoring and evaluation
Volunteers do not need to complete an application form. They can email us at mafwatheatre@gmail.com and we will follow this up with a zoom call.
