The Safer Street Project
Following an award from The Charles Plater Trust in January 2010, Ten Ten Theatre undertook a substantial project in eight Young Offender Institutions between November 2010 and April 2012.
The Safer Streets Project took a team of actor-facilitators into each insitution for a five-day period working with a group of 12-15 young men for the entire week. Participating YOI’s were: Ashfield, Aylesbury, Doncaster, Feltham and Wetherby.
The outcomes achieved in each institution included:
- development of confidence, aspiration and social skills;
- sharing and self-reflection:
- end-of-project performance to guests and peers
To read about the experience of the entire project, please visit the Ten Ten blog where various team members have contributed.
I can quite honestly say that working with your team was one of the best experiences I’ve had since I’ve been at Ashfield.
