You Can Drama group delivered an amazing performance and workshop as part of the Disability Hate Crime Project; a culmination of events and sessions during and post Disability Hate Crime week.
You Can delivered 3 awareness sessions on the subject of hate crime to our members during the Hate Crime Awareness Week 6th to 12th February 2017 and circulated information on Disability Hate Crime via You Can’s Facebook and Twitter channels as well as circulated via our extensive email distribution lists to member’s families, Salford school heads Ep’s and SEN contacts and partners.
A professional drama practitioner was engaged to work with our established drama group to devise design and perform a short drama presentation in the format of forum theatre. After 12 weeks devising, designing and rehearsing, the group delivered a workshop and performance to a very attentive audience of pupils at Walkden High School on 23rd June 2017.
Feedback from the performance and workshop provided some really interesting information;
