#2: Education through theatre

Health and hygiene awareness

In collaboration with Mercy Corps, Hua Dan developed “George the Germ”, an interactive performance and workshop series created to inculcate children with good health and hygiene practices in the refugee camps following the Sichuan earthquake in May 2008. The fun 30-minute performance was delivered to over 500 children in the months following the earthquake.

#3: Corporate Teambuilding Workshops

Creativity and innovation in the workplace

Participatory training is the most effective way to get your employees tapping into and unleashing their innate creativity.

Hua Dan’s innovation training begins by teaching your staff the basic building blocks of creative thinking and the different ways individuals can access its transformative energy. Then we look at how it can be best applied in the workplace – revitalising your staff, bringing increased productivity and putting the steps in place for the next big idea to roll your way.

Hua Dan’s training conveys messages necessary for a successful company in a unique and creative way. Our employees learned the importance of teamwork and patience by figuring out a complex problem that could only be solved by listening, learning and working together.
