Merit Minds Workshop was established as a registered society in August 2012 by three graduates from the Master of Applied Theatre and Drama Education program.  We aim to promote and advocate drama education and applied theatre in Hong Kong.   We believe that drama is a means to reach people’s hearts and minds.  By appreciating and engaging in arts, participants develop an enhanced understanding of themselves as members of cultures and societies with pasts, presents and futures.

Since established in August 2012, we have achieved in organising nearly 40 drama education initiatives in primary and secondary schools, student groups with special needs, and with teachers and social workers for professional development.  We have also produced and delivered nearly 500 sessions of Theatre-in-Education programmes for LCSD, Ping Wo Fund, CMAB, Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change, WWF-HK, UNICEF-HK, Oxfam-HK, etc.

德思戲劇教育工作室是由三位戲劇教育碩士於2012年創立的戲劇教育機構,致力推廣戲劇作為教學法及培育人材的工具。我們相信,學員通過戲劇能看到一個更大的世界,嘗試投入不同人的處境,瞭解自己及別人的生活,發展同理心,學習尊重不同文化和歷史,反思既有的觀念和立場。
