Community Collaborations

Every year, BRIT School students bring their diverse skills and creativity to thousands of children and adults from communities, schools, and community groups across Croydon and South London through our Community Collaborations programme; to many who might not otherwise have access to the arts:

 

This collaboration – the creation of a new play - was a celebration of The Crescent’s EAL (English as an Additional Language) students, aiming to break down stigma around being a non-native speaker with fellow students:

“It was no surprise that everyone loved the workshops… they all wept at the wonderful words they shared with each other and the audience This workshop with the BRIT proved that even though we talk about the 'generation gap' when they work together as they did for the few weeks, gaps closed and they all realised how similar they think when the cultural barriers society focuses on were removed. A very rewarding experience indeed”

This collaboration – the creation of a new play - was a celebration of The Crescent’s EAL (English as an Additional Language) students, aiming to break down stigma around being a non-native speaker with fellow students:

This was the best collaboration our schools have ever done. It was inspiring and the children at our school felt safe and nurtured by the students at The BRIT School. This meant that the children were able to confidently perform in front of their peers… the performance had ALL of their peers engaged…

"Students responded really well to the project - the sessions were extremely positive and exciting, and the development in confidence for both groups across the project was clear.”
