Speak Up is a drama workshop organisation founded by Teri Ann Bobb-Baxter, Speak Up make it their mission to break the stigma and push boundaries of mental health issues that children and adults face. 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 predominately focuses 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…
Speak Up aims to give their students, tools to communicate with each other such as:
• Improving social skills
• Understanding themselves better
• Exploring and overcoming unhealthy behaviors
• Helping children with learning difficulties
