EDUCATION & OUTREACH WORK

 
 

The B&G team are all experienced facilitators and enjoy delivering workshops and residencies for people of all ages, from school pupils through to elders and everyone inbetween.


WHAT WE OFFER

We work regularly with students and communities as part of our creative process, and value their input into our development of new work. We can also offer bespoke workshop sessions in scenography, costume design, writing for performance, practitioner-focused sessions, and team building exercises. We enjoy forging longer term relationships with organisations, and can offer one-off sessions or artistic residencies with students, in schools, theatres and arts centres, and with community groups. Our past projects include:


THE MEMORY STORE

A series of creative reminiscence workshops provided in day centres and other public spaces, where participants are encouraged to share their memories and distill them into an object, drawing, sound recording or piece of writing. The objects can become part of the Memory Store, our nationally touring installation that raises awareness of dementia and is funded by the Wellcome Trust. This is an on-going project and we’d be happy to hear from organisations wishing to host a workshop. We can also create a bespoke Memory Store for your organisation.


MISSION: IT HAS BEGUN

A two week residency at the University of Hull Scarborough campus, with BA students from the School of Arts & New Media. We led the students in creating a large scale site specific piece of work which took place in the town centre and on the beach. We facilitated the students creativity through enabling their writing, design, technical skills, and performance, and offered guidance and professional input. Participation in the residency formed part of the students final grading requirement.


LOST IN THE NEURON FOREST

We led a series of workshops with students on the HND Performance course at Lewisham & Southwark College, during which we introduced them to new forms of scenography and explored creating scenes and environments with inventive use of materials. The students then became part of our rehearsal process, joining us to experience and feedback on sections of the work as we developed it.


SIEGE

We spent a week with University of York Theatre, Film & TV students researching our new project Siege and helping the students develop devising and site specific theatre skills. Throughout Autumn 2015 we worked with students from Canterbury Christchurch University; equipping the students with tools from our process, and working with them to develop aspects of the production - the students performed alongside our professional cast at our work in progress performance, and also created their own small group performances in response to our work with them.


RETURN

We have been working with military spouses at St Athan and Beachley bases since Autumn 2017, following trial sessions in 2016. We are running a 9 month engagement programme offering creative skills training and the opportunity to participate in a public exhibition and performance. Please see our RETURN page for all the details and how to get involved.
