Spoken Word & Drama Workshops

Our bespoke Spoken World workshops can be tailored to your own particular subject or theme.

Previous workshops and projects have covered subjects such as:

  • Drugs
  • Domestic Violence
  • Isolation
  • Mental Health
  • Disability
  • Immigration
  • Drama for Literacy
  • Democracy (it’s all Greek to me)
  • The person I want to be

​All of our workshops are designed to support current secondary schools curriculums and practices.

Our workshops aid in the development of oratory skills. Not only are words used to give a meaning to the performance but the voice, volume, inflexion, pitch, pauses and speed of a person contributes to the entire recitation experience, enhancing the meaning.

Students develop vocal reasoning skills enabling them to communicate thoughts and ideas in a clear and concise way.

Many of the important concepts, strategies, and skills taught as part of our workshops are portable. Skills practiced can transfer readily to other content areas.
