We are an official Artsmark Partner and our free service shows schools how to do better quality art with their children in line with the 7 Artsmark Quality Principles. We provide a free staff development workshop and provide school with a Help DVD that has over 1300 children's pictures from previous projects on it plus huge amounts of help and guidance that schools can keep. We can show both traditional art and also have a specialist Street Art service which is in huge demand as schools tell us that this really engages the children in art and stimulates their interest in art. Following our workshop each child produces a piece of artwork and we collect, label and frame each piece. We then return to school on an agreed date and turn the hall into an Art Gallery for the day, setting up all the children's framed artwork on our special display boards so that children and parent can see their artwork in it's authentic setting and have a fantastic finale to their project. The exhibition has a major effect on children's self esteem. School can raise money if they wish to by selling the pictures to parents - take up rates are very high.

Ideas Depot is a new display that has been co-curated with primary school teachers across the city. Discover major works from the Tate collection by artists including Anya Gallaccio, ​Salvador Dalí and Chris Ofili. Central to this display is a belief that art plays a meaningful part in people’s day-to-day lives and intellectual curiosity. Through art we can always learn something new – about history, the world and our place in it. Works will be swapped in and out as the primary schools in residence pick and choose new ones from the art stores and develop links to the primary curriculum. The display has developed alongside a joint research project with Edge Hill University's Faculty of Education, focused on developing a 'schools in residence' programme.

It will look at creating physical sequences, working as an ensemble to explore ideas and relationships, an physicalising characters. USING PHYSICAL THEATRE TO EXPLORE SET TEXTS Using physical theatre and ensemble exercises, we explore one of your set texts, opening up the story, characters, relationships and images within the text, finding a deeper understanding of it and new ideas for staging. ACTIVE APPROACHES TO THE TEXT This workshop explores set texts by encouraging students to think like a theatre company.  It explores plays from the point of view of different theatre creatives: directors, actors, set and costume designers.  Students will analyse scenes as if they were producing the play themselves, and so develop a literary but intensely personal response.  They also explore how writers create their work, and devise their own short responses through utilising ‘found texts’ which they discover all around them.

“Why should I continue to be tolerant? When the world has been so intolerant of me.” Trojan Horse was a local story that hit the national press, accusing ‘hardline’ Muslim teachers and governors of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools. Adapted from the real-life testimonies of those at the heart of the UK Government's inquiry, critically acclaimed theatre-company LUNG investigates what really happened. Originally developed with Leeds Playhouse, Amnesty International Freedom of Expression & Fringe First Award-winning production, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent. “Perhaps the bravest and most astutely political of shows…relevant, terrifying and beautifully told...” ★★★★ WhatsOnStage ★★★★ - The Independent ★★★★ - The Scotsman

Not only are our classes energetic and fun, but also offer a multi-cultural experience full of cross-curricular learning. Languages, geography, maths and science are just some of the subjects our qualified and experienced facilitators delve into, topped off with a huge amount of exhilarating drumming! Half/full day sessions can be tailored to complement a particular topic or message such as the rainforest or empathy. Activities range from junk percussion-making to competitive team drumming games. No group is too big - our whole school boomwhacker orchestras get up to 400 staff and students working together to create a fantastic multi-part harmony of energy, rhythm and sound. We also offer CPD sessions to teachers and support staff, and have helped schools set up their very own drumming groups. Our specialist SEND sensory workshops are a wonderful way for pupils of all abilities and with specific needs to explore instrumentation, rhythm and the way music can make us feel.
