There is currently little creative activity within the Poulton of Morecambe for young people. From speaking to young people it is clear this project would encourage them to socialise outside of school and give them a purpose and a greater worth in their local community. I believe creating this weekly project for local vulnerable young people over summer 2017 is essential, it gives them the opportunity to be involved in a group, at a low cost and will provide them with an escape and chance to have fun regardless of pressures happening around them. This project will be run in a space currently not used by younger people, This will allow them to become aware of activities taking place in their local community. Fulfilling the potential of this underused space will contribute to a developing a thriving and connected society, developing a greater understanding of those who live around us. This Project is back by Unltd, spaces for changes fund and is highlighted as important by PCSOs
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Struggling with your mental wellbeing can be hard and lonely time for people with people often becoming isolated which can impact on later life opportunities. Connect 2 Drama will be running a Group project with the aim of creating a safe space for young people outside of their home environment to be themselves and explore through creative drama activities. This will offer a platform to address important topics, allowing young people to express themselves, overcome challenges and their voices to be heard. All Young people involved will gain an understanding of diversity of people living within the local society, unlocking a more inclusive and accepting local community and aid in breaking stigma. Bringing young people together who are facing similar struggles will allow for a network to be created among them and therefore encourage peer support. Giving young people a place to overcome barriers will enable them to build resilience and create a positive future for themselves.
