Collage of Making a Scene's work

WHO ARE MAKING A SCENE?

We are a service user led and managed drama group, made up of current and ex service users. We employ a paid drama tutor/director who has many years experience as an arts worker, actress and playright. We occasionally employ sessional arts workers when we are working with other groups and organizations. We have facilitators in all our workshops and groups who are current or ex service users and have gained experience of facilitating drama workshops.

WHAT DO MAKING A SCENE DO?

Meet weekly Work with games, improvisation, masks, music, creative writing, movement and dance to explore our world. Hold regular management group meetings. Run 8 week projects in various locations, presentations and workshops

HOW DO MAKING A SCENE WORK?

The group work in a variety of ways and the style of performance has developed because of a number of factors: some group members may not want to perform, learning text can be difficult, some members may move on or be unwell and so projecting the number of performers in any production is impossible.

GROUP'S AIMS:

Part of the group's aims when performing is to raise public awareness and tackle stigma, prejudice and discrimination by way of education and fun not confrontation. We are also doing a lot of work around Recovery, Social Inclusion and service user involvement.
