We are offering FREE creative workshops exploring issues of building understanding and appreciation of differences and similarities between cultures leading to more understanding and tolerance.
We have funding through the Hinkley Point C Impact Funds to deliver one- off workshops and some intensive workshops (10 workshops over 10 weeks) with young people around issues of identity, personal journeys and diversity.
We will do this through movement, dance and theatre.
The workshops clearly have synergy with the teaching of Fundamental British Values in schools as well as curriculum areas of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education and Citizenship.
The workshops are to be delivered between April and July 2021 and are free of charge to schools and are suitable for Year 6 pupils upwards.
Would you be interested in hosting a workshop? If so, would you like a series of 10 workshops with your students or just a one -off session? We can work flexibly with your students around the curriculum needs.

Where is Home? 2021 is a community project working with children and young people across Sedgemoor, Taunton and West Somerset.
The project builds on an outstandingly successful project that we delivered across the UK and in the USA and Japan in 2017-18 https://www.whereishome.biz/
The project will take place in schools and colleges, offering children a creative, social, and thought- provoking experience reflecting on their own cultural identity and those of those of others. It will develop both the physical and emotional well-being of those participating as well as creating increased community cohesion and promoting cultural acceptance in communities.
The aims of 'Where is Home? project are to:
• Work with children in schools to increase awareness acceptance and understanding of cultural diversity
• To make a lasting difference to the physical and emotional well-being of all participants
• To offer an opportunity for children to share their learning with wider school to maximise the impact of the messages.
• To improve the confidence of children from diverse cultures within a mainstream school
• To improve community cohesion and social acceptance within neighbourhoods.
