Project overview: Sharing Stories Project Evaluation
The Sharing Stories project was implemented at the Metropolitan Migrant Resource Centre WA (MMRCWA) in 2009. It delivers culturally appropriate sexual health education to CaLD youth, using creative engagement strategies such as theatre, filmmaking and art.
The project was evaluated in 2013 to investigate the effectiveness of interactive theatre and drama based strategies for educating CaLD youth. The findings have implications for practice in relation to the education of CaLD youth on sensitive topics within sexual health, such as:
- Interactive strategies such as theatre and drama should be used for discussing sensitive and taboo topics;
- Drama should be promoted for educating at-risk youth in other settings, and for other sensitive topics;
- Drama and theatre is a culturally appropriate method of engagement for young people from a range of CaLD backgrounds; and
- The use of drama as an interactive data collection method is effective for evaluating an arts- based program.

DVD and calendar resource evaluation
A paper-based survey was developed in 2015 to evaluate DVD and calendar resources from the Sharing Stories project. The survey included five questions which assessed: DVD or calendar preferences; knowledge gained from the DVD or calendar; behavioural intentions as a result of seeing the DVD or calendar; educative scope/capacity of the resources; and recommendations for future production.
