SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY PROGRAMME
Are you are a local business interested in helping young people and local community groups to participate in the arts?
By supporting our Schools and Community Programme you could give groups from across Cardiff and South East Wales a unique opportunity to engage with the arts and gain an insight into what goes on behind the scenes at Sherman Theatre.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Since 2012 Sherman Theatre’s Schools Appeal has supported local schools facing disadvantage to attend a performance of our Christmas production.
Due to the success of the appeal, which has so far enabled 6000 young people to see a performance at the Sherman, we want to extend the opportunity for schools and community groups to visit us at any time during the year and to enjoy a broader range of artistic provision. This provision can include taking part in bespoke creative workshops, designed to both develop young people’s skills across the curriculum and to act as a useful tool kit of ideas for teachers when working on curricular and extra-curricular activities, backstage tours (lasting 90 minutes) and Q&A sessions with members of the Sherman team.
HOW YOUR SUPPORT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Over the next 12 months we aim to engage a total of 50 school and community groups, working with a minimum of 1000 participants.
Your support really will make a difference in enabling us to deliver activities that are tailored to meet the needs of a diverse range of school and community groups.
HOW WE WILL ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SUPPORT
Once you donate to the programme, we will pair you with a group from our waiting list and will write to tell you how your donation will be spent. We will also acknowledge your support on our website and via our social media sites.
