Scary Little Girls have been using drama in schools to tackle vital issues in a dynamic, creative and engaging way since 2005.
Having received funding from The Maggie Black Trust to launch their first programme of workshops looking at inclusion and diversity, they were quickly recruited to the pioneering London scheme ASSP (Agencies Supporting Schools Programme).
As part of this elite group of practitioners, SLG developed bespoke workshops for primary and secondary aged students – communicating with the whole school community on issues such as Anti Bullying, Positive Behaviour, Assertiveness, Non Violent Conflict Resolution, Sexual Education and Healthy Relationships, Nutrition and Human Rights – for over ten years
We combine drama practices such as forum and verbatim theatre exercises with a cutting edge understanding of current best practice in delivering work about sexuality, race and gender.
We are able to use literature or plays as the base of the work if this is desired and as well as working with students we are adapt at running sessions for teachers, parents and staff.
We can run one off sessions or develop a programme of work with your school that lasts a whole term.
Our work is created bespoke to your students after a consultation process with you ensuring maximum benefits for all who take part.
We also have several speakers available to provide assemblies and training on the politics of women’s rights, gender and diversity, including Rebecca Mordan who founded SLG and is its Artistic Director.
Rebecca is a regular talking head on Sky News and BBC radio and has also appeared on The Big Questions, Woman’s Hour and Radio 5.
