Who Are We
Established in 2015, BIG BOLD YOUTH provides high quality, engaging and fun drama activities for 6-19-year-olds. At the same time, we want to ensure that our classes and workshops are affordable, making drama available to as many young people as possible.
Our teachers have trained at some of the country’s leading drama schools and are all working actors. This provides our students with the most up-to-date teaching possible. All our teachers are DBS checked and run activities according to our own structure, ensuring that a high-level of teaching is maintained across the board.
What Are We Doing
We want to run six free drama workshops at six different schools in Dorking, Surrey, both primary and secondary. Each workshop will last around three hours and will either be based on our own structure or will be created from scratch depending on a class' syllabus (i.e. based on the novel required for GCSE English). We use a variety of games, improvisation, movement, music and text work to engage students in a more creative and active way.
Why Are We Doing It
Our aim is to provide affordable and accessible drama opportunities for young people. To do this we not only provide affordable weekly classes and holiday workshops, but we also feel that providing free drama education at schools is a must. With so much of today's education focused on results, we want young people to be able to experience drama on their feet without the need for a pen and paper. We're also aware of how tight school budgets are, which is why we are always searching for different ways to fund free school drama workshops.
What Will The Money Be Used For
Surely drama workshops don't cost that much to run? Despite being seemingly simple, drama workshops actually cost a fair bit to run! Each three hour workshop costs approximately £165, which brings the total cost of six workshops to £990. Below are just a few ways in which your donation could help:
- 2 x industry professional actors to lead the workshops
- Supplies (incl. paper, pens, juggling balls, music, etc.)
- Travel to each venue
- Research for customised workshops
Why is our target £1095, not £990? Unfortunately, with the fees from both Crowdfunder and our payment provider, we have to charge slightly more in order to reach our true target. Our aim for the future is to secure local funding in order to provide regular free workshops for schools.
