Intercultural Youth Scotland (IYS) are proud to announce we’ll be partnering with Class Act, an incredible theatre engagement programme by the Traverse Theatre! The 30-year-old flagship educational project invites young people from all backgrounds to share and produce their own stage plays over a 7-week series.
So, how does Class Act work?
During the programme, you can work closely with theatre professionals to develop your project – and it doesn’t just have to be for the stage! It can be a music video, a short film, song writing, poetry or an animation! Whether you choose to work as a group, or individually, Class Act provide a dedicated facilitator to oversee and help realise your creative ideas. The first session will be on the 22nd November 2022, and the rest will follow on:
- 29th November
- 6th December
- 13th December
- 11th January
- 18th January
- 25th January
Don’t worry if you can’t make these dates, we can work around you!
For IYS, Traverse has the award-winning playwright, Sara Shaarawi as the Class Act mentor! The Cairo born, Glasgow based playwright is currently with production company, Stellar Quines. Her play “Sister Radio” is on run at Traverse and has received superb reviews from The Guardian, The Scotsman and The Times.
If you have a story to tell and would like to be part of this year’s Class Act programme, and you are committed to developing your work alongside award winning theatre professionals, then sign up to the IYS Class Act Eventbrite, and see where it could take you.
