This year we have been working with a school in Rugby, whose students are using theatre to talk about current issues felt within their peer groups.
Students at Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College have been utilising their Shout Out for the Arts funding to send an important message out to the world.
The students have been workshopping and creating plays that highlight issues that they felt were important to young people coming into high school, such as peer pressure.
“We were really struck by how the students wanted to use their own experiences to inform and support younger children in an encouraging and comedic way!”Amy, Shout Out for the Arts
Their plan is to produce the plays and then tour them to local primary schools in Rugby. Watch this space for more updates soon!
In the meantime, these wonderful photos capture just how hard they have been working.
Well done everyone!
