Top Tips

  • Is your Drama project exciting, well planned and creative?
  • Are you improving skills, knowledge, communication and connections through Drama in a specific community?
  • Does your project enable excellent social and artistic outcomes?
  • Will your project have a lasting impact for the participants and their community?

Ideas

  1. Enable families to explore their stories of lockdown together through an immersive drama and arts experience
  2. Give KS4 learners the opportunity to work with the elderly on a verbatim intergenerational drama project exploring perceptions of aging and how we care
  3. Fund a verbatim workshop that trains your learners to collect and dramatise research and stories for a TIE performance
  4. Use drama to improve community relationships through a bi-lingual devising / playwriting project
  5. Enable inspirational collaboration between two institutions through drama e.g. a 6th form college and a university, a business and a drama club, a special school and a primary
  6. Create an engaging and effective, informed and well produced advert for use on social media explaining why Drama should be as important as Music and Art, PE and Geography in schools
  7. Write up research and findings from focus groups with teachers, students and parents exploring outcomes when schools do and do not offer drama lessons in Key Stage 3
  8. Interview a range of policy makers and school leaders exploring their decisions around drama and starting a conversation in the public domain
  9. Design and investigate a research question around what makes an excellent lesson, informed by different perspectives. This could be disseminated to ITT and RQT teachers of Drama.
  10. Explore, identify and challenge contemporary biases against Drama and the Arts that might be affecting KS4 uptake and present this factually or in a short performance
