Issue-based Drama Workshop

From confidence building to environmental issues, anti-bullying to substance misuse, anger management to sexual health, black history week to world faith day or even the riots, issue-based drama workshops focus on any theme relevant to the group.

This is the ideal drama workshop to encourage young people to use a range of drama techniques and exercises to create performances and tackle issues and themes.  Although drama and performance doesn't come naturally to some people, these sessions are specifically designed to boost confidence and help people find their inner voice, while at the same time raising awareness and providing training and education from addressing contentious issues.

In this drama workshop, young people will have the opportunity to challenge opinions and each other, through debates and presentations. Communication and literacy skills will be addressed as a result, as will their social awareness and conscious.

Drama techniques and exercises are applied in order to address the issue, with an emphasis on having fun, playing, learning and enjoying, while taking part in the many activities for young people.

 Sessions/project lengths will vary depending on what works best for each project group.

What areas does it cover on the national curriculum? What boxes does it tick?

Citizenship, cross curricular peer to peer learning and ALL strands within the global dimensions calendar.
