Sistren Theatre Collective (SISTREN) is an independent women’s organization, established in 1977 that has effectively employed the use of artistic expression as a means of inciting social change. As a trailblazer in gender relations training, Sistren has creatively responded to the changing needs within communities across Jamaica and particularly in Kingston in order to empower residents to change their situations. SISTREN uses the arts as a means of confronting the public on problems facing both genders, and brings pressure to bear on society to change negative stereotypes. SISTREN was one of ten organisations worldwide to receive the UNHABITAT “Certificate of Recognition for Excellence in Urban Safety, Crime Prevention and Youth” in 2008.
