A group of young adults with learning difficulties that gathers together once a week to develop their drama skill and have fun, whilst doing so they develop their communication skills.
The group devised their own play about a haunted B&B that over a hectic weekend had many different and interesting visitors. The play proved that you are never too old to fall in love and get married.
Everyone involved really enjoyed it. We are currently working on a new production and the jungle book which will be shown in a theatre in Dawlish.
Exeter Forum Theatre (EFT) is a W+W project which provides arts opportunities for homeless, ex-homeless and vulnerably housed people. We also train people
who have experienced homelessness in acting and faciliation skills and then design and deliver innovative training days for a range of settings including conferences, alcohol and drug workers, mental health services and housing staff.
This spring we will be running the fourth of our Street Music courses in Exeter.
The course is a 12 week structured programme of creative, technical and cultural hip-hop music education for young people aged 14 – 25 who are out of, or at risk of being excluded from formal education, training or employment.
The course covers:
• Music theory and composition.
• History of music and music culture.
• Song writing techniques and lyrical content.
• Music technology and uses of computer software
• Digital Illustration and Graphic design
Aceh in northern sumatra was one of the regions most affected by the 2004 tsunami. Prior to the devastation of the wave the area had been in the grips of a thirty year conflict which saw the region divided into sections which were controlled by either government or anti government (GAM) forces and factions. The tsunami to some extent signalled a new phase and lessening of tensions, clashes were replaced by cooperation.
