Wan Smolbag Theatre is a non-government organization based in Vanuatu but operating all over the South Pacific. We started as a group of 15 voluntary actors in 1989, then 5 paid actors, now in 2014 we have about 150 full and part-time staff.
Over the past 25 years, Wan Smolbag has played a critical role in the wellbeing of Vanuatu communities through: impressive theatre productions, six seasons of a soap opera and numerous feature films popular across the region, educational resources used across the Pacific, governance programmes, an ever-expanding environmental network, three reproductive health clinics, youth and sport programs and an innovative nutrition centre.Coupled with structured workshops facilitated by actors, the organization uses drama to inform, raise awareness and encourage public discussion on a range of contemporary health, lifestyle, environment and governance issues. These address every imaginable theme from waste management and electoral rights to domestic violence and AIDS.
