The following are examples of workshops that have been delivered in schools or other educational settings. They are simply to show you how work can fit with the cirriculum, or in other ways make creative practise relavant to the S.M.S.C. (Social Moral Spiritual Cultural) agenda.
They are only examples and we are interested in developing bespoke work for your institution or group.
The short term/ 1-2 day projects are ideal for Enrichment Days and Summer Challenges, but can also make memorable experiences embedded in many subject areas. They encourage cross cirricular delivery.
The key point is to see an intervention as creative practise in a given field of investigation and not 'just art'.
Workshops for schools can cover an extremely wide range of practise so it is not only the content but the practitioner/artist/educator that is essential to the delivery of high quality memorable experiences in learning.
Stephen Whitehead, (and the other practitioners working in Countershade), use a combination of story telling, performance, and interaction with participants from role play, physical experiences, debate, exploration and evaluation in the work.
There is also considerable time spent on planning and art direction and other resources, to tailor "off the shelf" packages to fit more exactly the needs of particular classes.
Please note that the workshop packages listed are just an indication of workshops that can be created; your input on future work is welcomed.
