Community Arts Practice

This course is for students who are interested in using the performing arts for more than just performing. The course focuses on how the performing arts can be used positively for change and development and students will develop skills as community arts practitioners. There will be the opportunity to work directly with various community groups: young people, school children, the elderly, people with disabilities and work in prisons and pupil referral centres amongst other community settings.

Students will acquire practical skills in theatre, music, movement and design and learn how to use these skills in a community setting. Students will take part in workshops in which they will learn how to plan, deliver and lead successful projects and workshops themselves. The course will have various opportunities to create performance material as well as take part in performances in venues both inside and outside the School. The course will culminate in a community arts festival that will include work created by students on the course who will also run and administrate the festival and organise performances and workshops with visiting professionals.

“My highlights of the Community Arts Practice Course have included touring children’s theatre, teaching movement to adults with disabilities and singing with Age UK in front of The Duchess of Cornwall”.
Mahmoud Zayat. Community Arts Practice Student.
