It has been a year since Mike North and myself were made redundant from CMS and were inspired to create Scene Change Theatre Company and co-write the Down to Earth Project. Mike has gone on to other pastures as the youth coordinator for the Sheffield Diocese. But I have soldiered on and even though I considered throwing it all in during the summer I am glad I did not! This term with the help of CMS we secured funding from Westhill Endowment to take our environmental drama project to 8 schools in London. Four in Southall and four in Clapham/Tulse Hill. Yesterday we finsihed in Clpaham of all places! Check out write ups from each of the projects, with pics to follow on the Down to Earth blog.
Jenny Baker who runs the sophia network blog (recently winning the title of the best Christian blog) asked me to write something about my work with Tender and using drama to address domestic abuse with young people. You can read the article by clicking on the Sophia Network link.
