Could you champion one of our projects?
Being a Project Champion for Face Front means helping to raise awareness of our work by lending your name to one of our projects.
You would feature in our press releases and on our website, promote the project when opportunities arise in your professional life, and support funding applications. (Obviously, we would be delighted if you also wanted to support the project financially, but that isn't a requirement.)
We appreciate how busy you are and we are not asking for a significant time commitment.
One visit to the project is all we ask. Your support could cover a school tour of as little as eight weeks or the duration of the production or group season (at least a year).
Why do it?
Because you care about inclusive theatre.
Face Front is a charity creating theatre that pioneers social change for an inclusive world.
Our shows and activities help to transform the lives of disabled and disadvantaged people and improve emotional well-being and address social injustice.
We do that by creating multi-accessible theatre for schools and the public, with disabled and non-disabled performers.
We run three programmes:
- Theatre in Schools – engaging, issue-based theatre by professional artists on topics such as domestic abuse, sex and relationships, bullying and the transition of disabled children from school to adult life.
- Act the Part – theatre projects and workshops for disabled and non-disabled young people and adults to improve confidence, reduce isolation and gain arts and social skills
- Training – for emerging disabled artists, policy makers, health, education and social care professionals, companies and other organisations.
Projects you could champion
Come and see one of our groups or performances and be inspired. We are based in Edmonton (north London), work across London and tour nationally.
A performing arts group for young disabled people from 11 – 18 to begin experiencing Drama, Dance and Music.
An adult drama group of approximately 20 disabled participants with sensory and mobility impairments, mental health issues and learning difficulties.
Their original musicals have been performed at the Dugdale Theatre in Enfield.
A group of disabled and non-disabled people, with members from 8 to 92.
They learn music and theatre skills, write and perform their own shows, led by experienced professional artist/facilitators.
This play for 9 and 10-year olds follows a family experiencing domestic abuse.
It is both humorous and disturbing, exploring the effects on the mental health of children who witness abuse.
The performance for 13 and 14-year olds raises awareness of the issue of consent, the dangers of ‘sexting’ and online bullying and the negative role of pornography in relationships.
It helps young people to make informed, responsible and healthy choices, helping to prevent teenage pregnancy and STI’s.
We would love to hear from you to discuss how you can help.
