WHAT WE DO
OUR MAJOR PROGRAMMES
Workshops in Schools
MORE THAN A PASSION:
This workshop tailored for Parents and Artistic Children.
This workshop provides an open platform for children to express their desire to pursue a career in the arts to their parents.
By being impartial during this workshop, LET THEM facilitators give both the parents and the children facts about the Arts industry, at the same time giving both sides an opportunity to air out their concerns.
This workshop introduces students to critical and out-side-the-box approach to thinking. The participating students explore music and dance forms that they have never encountered or participated in.
Theatre in Schools
The 'Theatre in Schools' programme aims to educate youth in schools on various personal and social topics that affect them. The message is delivered in theatrical format (plays), and is followed by a focus-group discussion with students who are present.
In the 4th quater of 2015, LET THEM partnered with COSV to deliver a series of plays in rural schools.
