We are delighted to announce that Autumn 2017 sees our first DET Education Tour.
Following the success of Might Never Happen at The King's Head Theatre in May 2016, we have created a theatre education workshop, in partnership with two specialist violence prevention organisations, Purple Drum and the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre, supported and funded by Durham University.
Inspired by the research of Dr. Fiona Vera-Gray and Dr. Maria Garner, the theatre piece highlights the impact of street harassment on young women and girls and challenges harmful gender stereotypes affecting young women and men. It is designed to raise the issue of public sexual harassment safely, whilst promoting discussion and awareness. The show is delivered over a double period (an average of 100 minutes), with the show lasting approximately 50 minutes followed by a workshop to help young people unpick some of the issues raised.
It is delivered free of charge to schools and other youth settings in London and the North-East, and teachers will receive a detailed resource pack containing follow on lesson plans and suggested exercises.
We are currently booking in the free sessions for the 2017/18 school year.
Be quick to secure your place as delivery is limited.
