Following up from our first series of workshops which focussed on RSE, we have broadened our coverage to wider social issues. Here, we look at workshops and performances which create space for participants to engage with issues they may not consider in day-to-day life an share their thoughts and views. 

Accepting Others Workshop

Suggested Age Group:

Year 7

Our theme for this workshop is accepting and respecting others. Activities in this workshop session prompt participants to consider what changes might occur and taking on the mantle of accepting what is proposed, rather than being critical and resisting a suggested action/movement/idea. Participants should be able to observe how constructive a community can be when acceptance is considered; perhaps even unexpected collaboration and harmony. The performance allows participants to witness when there is a lack of inclusiveness within a social environment. Towards the end of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity share in discussion and analyse the action they have seen.

Lonely Together; Let's Talk Suicide

Suggested Age Group:

Year 11

 

This piece of theatre and discussion was developed alongside the guidance of PAPYRUS, a suicide prevention charity, and interviews with professionals in the mental health support, including psychotherapists and wellbeing counsellors. This play explores the life of one character, Jamie Wilson. She shares with the audience her current situation and what she has missed out on due to her current lifestyle. The audience discover more by welcoming the three closest people in her life. Between each scene, the audience are invited to participate in discussions to analyse what they think of Jamie's current state and where this might lead to.

The performance if followed by a small workshop which focuses on a healthy mindset. The workshop encourages participants to think about moments/events/happenings in life that could impact someone negatively and then the contrast that with moments/events/happenings in life that could impact someone positively. Our workshops aim to highlight that although the positives in life stop us from thinking about the negatives, it is important sometime to acknowledge and talk about what impacts us negatively. The workshop concludes by encouraging participants to think about people or charities they could speak to if they ever felt they needed to. All discussions are focussed on to Jamie, adhering to a one step removed approach.

Please feel free to get in touch for a copy of the script for your perusal or a copy of a filmed performance is available.

As with all our workshops, participants can choose to back out if they wish too.
