Building adventures for the classroom: workshops with Undercurrent Festival, Shoreham, 20th March

We’ve known Undercurrent Festival for a long time now, and love how they bring playful, interactive work to the West Sussex coast. ‘For inquisitive adults and mischievous children’ is a target audience very much like our own!

As part of Undercurrent Festival 2014 we’re very pleased to be bringing A Cat Escapes to 300 primary school children in February. As part of this, we’ll be holding two workshops with Undercurrent on the 20th of March that will help artists and teachers build their very own adventures for the classroom, using our award winning Adventures in Learning as inspiration. Coney co-director Tom Bowtell and myself, producer of Adventures in Learning, will be leading the sessions.

Read on for full details, and we hope to see you there!
