Arts In Regeneration


Commisioned by Birmingham City Council, as Jestaminute Theatre, to work with three primary schools to develop temporary works of art reflecting social, economical and environmental changes taking place in Lozells, Newton and Aston Birmingham. We led a class of pupils in each school, using drama workshops to help children investigate their feelings about their neighbourhood. They showed what they liked, what they didn't like, what they were scared of and what they would change to make things better in the future. Once we had gathered their thoughts and ideas, we helped them to create a piece of drama for them to show back to the rest of the school and the wider community. The project had a big impact on helping to build the self esteem and confidence of the classes we worked with, and we had feedback that the children, (particularly some if the more lively boys), were concentrating better and arguing less when working.
