Speak Up
About Us

Mission Statement

Speak Up is a drama workshop organisation founded by Teri Ann Bobb-Baxter, we make it our mission to break the stigma and push boundaries of mental health issues that children and adults face through drama exercises and activities. By leading these drama workshops we believe it will encourage conversation around mental health issues and wellbeing.

We believe introducing a safe space and a fun filled environment can really help student’s confidence and self-esteem. The workshops predominantly focus on giving a safe platform in which you can explore different types of drama techniques such as exploring text, devising short plays, improvising, exploring physicality through space, role play and much more…

Some of the benefits students can get from our workshops are: :
• Improving social skills
• Public Speaking Skills
• Boosting children's self-esteem and confidence
• Developing their creativity
• Improving communication skills
• Encouraging teamwork and cooperation

Teri believes that there is significant importance for all ages to get up and express themselves in a fun filled environment! Teri gets great satisfaction from witnessing pupils lose all inhibitions when immersing themselves into role.
