Our Inspiring Curiosity Website Is Now Live!
This week saw the successful launch of Inspiring Curiosity, our year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the invention of Theatre in Education (TiE) at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry!
In partnership with Coventry City Council, TiE was delivered as part of a free service to schools and the young people of Coventry between 1965 and 1996. The Theatre in Education movement soon spread to theatres across the UK, and then to broader contexts across the globe, inspiring a wide range of participatory theatre with children and young people, encouraging and empowering children to investigate challenging situations for themselves.
To mark this exciting anniversary, the Belgrade will play host to a year-long programme of events celebrating the richness and diversity of theatre made by, with or for young people in this country.
You can find out more about what we’ve got coming up throughout the year by visiting our new website, Inspiringcuriosity.co.uk
