What We Offer
A performance-based outreach programme for schools, colleges and community settings. Suitable for audiences aged 13+ years, Shadow Games is recognised by the Home Office as an example of good practice in exploring key issues raised by the Prevent strategy.
Our approach promotes the safeguarding and resilience of our communities and counteracts negative stereotypes through creative engagement and critical learning. Our audiences are encouraged to 'hot-seat' the characters, question their motives and discuss questions of innocence and guilt in a structured courtroom debate.
