WORKSHOPS OUTREACH EDUCATION
COMMUNITY THEATRE


 

At Theatre for Life we work with aspiring and emerging young theatre makers to create life changing theatre projects to support our immediate community and beyond. 

Using theatre for change we want to nurture and support creativity amongst marginalised groups both within our company and the audiences we reach. 


Our outreach workshops focus on growth mindsets and mindfulness, instilling self confidence and developing life long skills.

Theatre for Life can create bespoke performing arts workshops unique to a school or college to help further subject knowledge through challenging, innovative and creative planning with professional artists and educators. 


The Silent Mind project is continually evolving with new stories of resilience, empowerment and compassion for others with mental health. In 2020 we will be devising and touring a new adaption of ‘Silent Mind’ on mental health awareness with a community group of emerging theatre makers aged 18-25.


CORE AIMS:
  • To ensure young people regardless of circumstance have access to the arts, company members will not be charged a membership fee for participation in the Youth Theatre and Community groups for those who meet our eligibility criteria. 
  • To create theatre projects that are relative to the company and the local community, tackling subject matters which can be part of an outreach programme to reach wider audiences.
  • To safeguard all the young people and adults attending Theatre for Life, making a positive contribution to a strong and safe community that recognises the right of every individual to stay safe.
