About

The Barefeet Theatre is a Zambian NGO, founded in 2006 by a team of artists who share their creative disciplines with young people, with the sole purpose of bringing about change and human development. At first, they worked together to deliver theatre workshops to children living in the streets of Zambia and they noticed the positive impact in those children’s lives. Since this humble beginning, Barefeet has grown organically into a vibrant, exciting and groundbreaking organization, utilizing the power of art to inspire build and transform lives. Providing young people with an increased appreciation of culture and art and creating an army of knowledgeable youth advocates empowered to spark creative fires across the country.

Building the Strategy

In November 2013, Holly McGavock from Grey NY went to Lusaka, Zambia, to work along with Barefeet Team to build an effective, appropriate and sustainable communications strategy. This strategy will raise awareness of the issues faced by the children and the young people they work with. Barefeet wants to showcase their talent, enabling their voices to be heard throughout society, promoting the organization’s work and strengthening its sustainability.

Performance Company

Following from the strategy developed by Holly, Grey NY sent the amazing Sam Miller. The goal was to apply the strategy to Barefeet’s perfomance company and help them communicate what they are all about – and by doing so, get more companies to hire their shows. According to Adam McGuigan, one of the Founders of Barefeet, these two placements felt like one long and rich process to the organization. To put in his own words, “The Legend of Sam will live long after she left Lusaka. We have made a significant leap in the organisation because of her huge and important contribution!”
