Schools, Colleges and Universities

ZENDEH is always interested in hearing from educational establishments looking for interesting creative activities for students or professional development opportunities for staff. We are always keen to tailor our workshops and residencies to meet the needs of each establishment.

ZENDEH is highly experienced in developing multi art form workshops and residencies in Schools, Colleges and Universities. We will be offering a programme of workshops to schools that help contribute to the delivery of the national curriculum at Key Stage 3 and 4. Through Poetry, Drama and Movement these workshops can enhance pupil learning across the syllabus for English, developing confidence, creativity, cultural understanding and critical thinking. The themes of our work can also support teaching of the Citizenship syllabus at Key Stage 3 and 4; exploring democracy, global interdependence, cultural diversity and human rights; helping to encourage democratic participation, social responsibility and active citizenship.

Community Groups

Participation is at the heart of our practice. ZENDEH has considerable experience of working in partnership with a broad range of community groups from young carers to older peoples' groups. Our workshops are an opportunity to share ideas and develop new skills in an engaging, creative and safe environment. We take enormous pride in developing bespoke workshops for each group which are always empowering, enjoyable and inspiring.

We continue to work with groups to creatively explore through drama, movement, music and visual arts themes such as freedom, family, love, story-telling.
