RicNic Engage takes our unique youth-led approach into schools, colleges and community settings. We work with young people aged 11+ to explore what it takes to run a Production Company and put on a show. In particular, our Engage workshops are aimed at engaging young people who have otherwise limited opportunities to the arts and to be creative.
Engage workshops are facilitated by an experienced theatre practitioner, but the focus is on equipping young people with the skills to run their own company. During the sessions, the participants explore performance skills, what makes a strong leader and team player and look at budgeting, scheduling and marketing skills. The aim of the sessions is to enable all who take part to find a creative way of expressing themselves - whether through live performance or behind the scenes design work.
