Date: Monday 14th November 2011 (National Anti-Bullying Week).

This event is an excellent opportunity to share some of the good practice that is taking place in the ambassador schools (or new schools/academies interested in joining), showcasing this to a large audience from across the UK as well as providing new ideas and inspiration. In the first half of the day, young people will have the opportunity to participate in creative workshops to explore the issue of bullying through: dance, art, music, drama, fun & games and poetry.

In the second half of the day, we will showcase some of the achievements of the earlier workshops. A networking session will allow all schools to speak to each other about what anti-bullying work they carry out and gain valuable ideas and insight. Then a special panel will answer questions on the subject of bullying. After that an Anti-bullying ‘Dragon’s Den’ will see young ambassadors pitch their innovative ideas to tackle bullying to a select group, prizes will go to the best ideas. Plus lots more!

A free one-off event giving you the chance to listen to four innovative and provocative speakers addressing the major issues affecting today's LGBT youth.

Lysistrata - Kidbrooke School Production at Riverside Studios

Lysistrata

5-9th July 2011
Matinees and evening performances

Riverside Studios, Hammersmith, London

Athens is at war. The men are fighting or dead. Humanity is suffering. One woman is sick of it. Taking matters into her own hands, Lysistrata calls the women of all the warring factions to gather in the city with one mission - to bring about peace. The men however, resist this idea. The battle lines are drawn.

Brief Encounters - Theatre in Education workshop

A PSHE focused Theatre In Education package aimed at Key Stage 4 and 5 students.image of red y-fronts

Brief Encounters follows Sophie through one of the most difficult periods of her life so far. She’s 18, just about to make that big transition form school to university and is struggling to get her head around all the changes that will entail. But Sophie quickly discovers that her preoccupation with her own worries have prevented her from seeing that those closest to her are struggling to come to terms with the changes in their lives too…

The play is a thought-provoking, educative piece of drama performed and written by young members of the LGBTQ community. Exploring the themes of gender identity and sexual orientation, Brief Encounters serves as a springboard into a practical drama-based workshop for students that offers them the chance to question and understand these sensitive and important issues.

The workshop is led by experienced practitioners who create a friendly and safe environment in which students broaden their awareness of how gender definition affects them and acknowledge the existence of homophobia and transphobia within schools and wider society.
