 WORKSHOP 


An intergenerational & creative workshop for all ages with Theatre for Life as part of the city wide Mayflower 400 initiative and Emerge project.

Emerge, is an online community theatre & film project, challenging equalities around mental health, shaping a future informed by lessons of the past. Working with patients at Southampton Children’s Hospital we will be exploring their journeys, alongside hidden stories of disadvantaged communities dealing with mental health in the aftermath of the Titanic disaster. 


We are exploring the aftermath of the Titanic on the Southampton community, humanising stories around hidden heritage. Emerge will voice the triumphs of the human spirit over adversity both past and present.  We would be really interested to hear from anyone with family links, ancestry or research on the Titanic within the Southampton area.


We particularly want to voice the stories of the hardships encountered by the survivors and their families and the impact this had on Southampton communities. 


Working with professional storyteller and facilitator, Amari Harris you will have the opportunity to share your story creatively. 



CREATIVITY AND WELLBEING PROGRAMME 
MAY TO OCTOBER 2020 


 
 

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. 


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.

Theatre for Life CIC has teamed up with Southampton Children’s Hospital, Solent Mind and Southampton City Council Cultural Services in a cross-community film project titled ‘Emerge’. The project is part of the city-wide Mayflower 400 programme.

‘Emerge’ will be a devised performance, humanising stories of communities dealing with hidden disability and mental health, connecting with audiences through stories of hope and resilience.
