Drama in Action: Workshops for Youth Educators
Specially devised for youth educators, this professional development project is led by theatre director, actor and playwright Eimear "Mimi" Burns, and runs throughout the 2019/2020 school year as a series of dynamic and informative workshops based around scriptwriting, directing, performance skills, games and more. The workshops are particularly suitable for local primary and secondary school teachers who work with young people in English.
Workshop 1: Let Them Play
Explore the development of performance and personal skills through hands-on interactive drama games and activities that show the value and benefits of play.
Workshop 2: Let Them Lead
Learn how to devise and facilitate student-led activities that let your students spread their wings and take the lead in a structured, goal oriented and creative environment.
X’tra Special Arts Project
Since 2011, our very popular X’tra Special Arts programme has provided free, high-quality arts activities for students with special needs, encouraging participants to express themselves through art and receiving an enthusiastic response from schools and organisations. This year, we are delighted to announce the return of the project with a new series of art and science workshops.
Although sometimes it might seem that art and science are unrelated – that science is systematic and objective, and art is intuitive and subjective – the two disciplines have a lot in common. Both are about experimentation and discovery, and both require curiosity, skill and creative imagination.
In these workshops, local artist Karen Pow combines art practice with scientific theories, and shows students how to create their own oobleck paintings from cornstarch and water, and how to make colourful “lava” water bottles. The sessions are a great way for students to have fun creating art and to learn about the fundamental scientific principles of stress and density at the same time!
