Our arts and performance forms will be guided by research projects of members on People Theatre/Video production in order to sensitise the local/global audience on our local artistic potentials, and arts and cultural activities.

Through frequent-working sessions enthusiastic and budding talents, will be trained to make People Theatre/Video. This will culminate in regular productions on socio-cultural concerns that treat local and global realities in partnership with national and international organs to promote informal education through performance. CP: CRTV intends to engage in advocacy for the alleviation of barriers on international co-operation in the People Theatre and Video Productions while lobbying for support to fund activities that fall in line with those of CP: CRTV.
Focus too will be on theatre and other performance forms as effective and basic instrument for cultural emancipation, better outreach in the global world and education to seek new grounds to raise awareness in society on the necessity for constant co-operation and partnership in both the public and private institutions towards development. Encourage “glocalisation” through the appropriation localisation and “glocalisation” of the media and the new information and communication technologies.
