The organisation decided it was best to expand into a Charity that focuses on our social impact while offering a creative curriculum so, we are embarking on:
Life is but a Pantomime!
A 17 week course were by attendees will work toward gaining 4 SQA Qualifications while building a pantomime showcase using real life experiences.
• Comedy and Confidence L3/L4
• NPA Creative Industries with specialty area (Music, Production, Wardrobe, Lightning & Sound, Drama ect)
• Wellbeing with Mental Health Input.
Our first one is due to debut at the esteemed Theatre Royal on the 30th March 2020 (that’s NOT Christmas I hear you say!) but it’s about exclusion, the genre of pantomime allows a family friendly approach and audience while giving the opportunity to express yourself in a variety of ways.
Every candidate will get to build part of the showcase and have the opportunity to work with Industry specialists.
Now, as we are a brand new charity we are fund raising for the core costs to get the first years showcase completed!
We have use our contacts to help cover some of our delivery and the partnership with the Theatre Royal has given us some wonderful things. We aim for this to be an annual showcase.
The first one is focused on Care Experienced people, next year we aim to cover mental health and suicide then homelessness.
By giving people an opportunity to use their voices from real experiences this gives the chance to create awareness and change while giving them access to a bespoke education. We know this will help get them the life they deserve opposed to the one they have been dealt.
As we are a brand new charity we have teamed up with RBS back her business and have launched our crowd funder page :
It would be amazing if you could donate EVEN a small amount ( your lunchtime coffee – NOT the morning one we aren’t that savage!) and pass this around your network, as together we can create a social impact that will help the future generations be innovative, creative and successful!
If you wish to know more about the charity or our vision, perhaps you have some spare time you could lend as a volunteer PLEASE do get in touch!
“This isn’t just for or about me, it’s a chance for everyone who genuinely wants to succeed”
Many thanks for taking the time to read this, have a wonderful week!
