Opening Doors Tantrum

Open to schools across NSW, Opening Doors is a touring theatre production educating young people about the causes and impacts of domestic and family violence and the avenues of support available to them if they are experiencing these issues.
Thanks to the generous support of the Greater Charitable Foundation, Tantrum Youth Arts are thrilled to be touring the production to 20 schools in 2018, free of charge.

“It was fantastic for the students to gain awareness of not only what domestic violence looks like but the support mechanisms in place for them and their families. This was one of the best educational performances I have seen.” – Teacher, Francis Greenway High School 2016.

Opening Doors has been devised for students in Years 9 - 12 and is followed by a discussion forum presented by professional actors and supported by input from police officers, solicitors, counsellors and support service providers through our partnership with the Cooperative Legal Service Delivery program.

“It was confronting but helped me to realise that what seemed normal at home isn’t necessarily right.” - Student, Lake Munmorah High School, 2014.
