In School Program: Domestic Violence & Image-Based Abuse

Opening Doors: Digital

Opening doors to healthy, respectful relationships

Opening Doors: Digital is an immersive online experience where students engage in 15-year-old Zoe’s story through interacting with her public, curated videos, and viewing her private exchanges with family and friends. While Zoe attempts to make everything in her life look great, the truth inevitably comes to light. 

Opening Doors: Digital addresses the issues of domestic violence and image-based abuse, and supports students to understand how to access help and what support is out there.

Based on Tantrum’s acclaimed and long-running theatre-in-education program Opening Doors, this new digital version provides a unique, engaging and immersive approach to respectful relationships education in schools.


“A wonderfully thought out and important program that will serve young people well in allowing for conversations and reflections on serious and impactful topics.”
– Rebecka Fenwick, Dungog High School.

“Truly engaging and thought-provoking. Tantrum’s ‘Opening Doors: Digital’ prompts vital discussions on technology, image-based abuse, and domestic violence. A must-see for high school teachers aiming to engage students in critical conversations.”
– Bradley McDonald, Adamstown Public School.

Register for a FREE place in the Program

Schools in Lake Macquarie, the Hunter and Central Coast are invited to register for a funded place in the Opening Doors: Digital program in 2023/24.

As part of the funded program you will need to nominate one class (up to 30 students) to take part in the program in Terms 1-2 2024. The program requires 2 x 45 minute periods which can be a double period or two separate periods on different days. Tantrum will support the delivery of the program for the initial class, attending your school on the nominated dates/times to co-facilitate with the classroom teacher.

Your school will then have access to the Opening Doors: Digital program for a further 6 months, in which time you can choose to deliver the program to further students in your school at your own pace.

This program is made possible thanks to funding from the NSW Government through the Stronger Country Communities Programme.
