About Us

Drama in Mind is a workshop designed for children and young people aged 8 to 16 years to explore their emotional wellbeing on issues they may face on a daily basis (e.g. anger, shame, fear, bullying). Using the imaginative power of drama, these workshops provide valuable learning opportunities for your children, allowing them to express themselves creatively whilst embracing a new, positive perspective or even changing their mindset on an issue.

Each workshop focuses on an issue that challenges the child to think things through from a different angle and then create a sketch to present to the rest of the group. This not only increases confidence in each child but also encourages relationship building skills.

Our Vision

Drama In Mind is also a provider of arts education for children of all ages. We are committed to widening participation in the arts and believe that every child should have the opportunity to participate in high quality arts education with a gifted, passionate and highly trained professional.

To build confidence, unlock emotions, unleash creativity in every child. Our workshops promote the opportunity for children and young people to take time to really think about how they manage their emotions.
