Taking Part

We love sharing the creative process with new people

It's an integral part of our production process and in workshops, residencies and targetted participation projects. Every year we work with hundreds of people, young and old, some who call themselves artists and some who don't.

Our participation programme has the aim of being accessible to anyone wanting to engage. Our work ranges from one to one therapeutic work with some of the most at risk young people in the UK, to performance opportunities for young professionals, and everything in between.

 

We support the development of younger artists, providing worthwhile opportunities including internships, placements and volunteer positions working within our professional teams. We run a mentoring scheme for emerging theatre companies offering training, advice and practical support.

 

Have a look at the various strands of work we do:

 

>>Targeted projects

 

>>Residencies

 

>>Schools and Colleges

 

>>Dramatherapy

 

>>Talent Development

 

If you or any of the young people you work with would benefit from any of our strands of participation, please don't hesitate to get in touch - contact our Participation Manager Emily Eversden with any questions.

Belongings – Rowan Tree Dramatherapy

by Bryony Brooker & Justine Staley   An idea   First of all, I want to say I love my job and after working with Tangled Feet, I love my job with rejuvenated enthusiasm, a bag full of shiny tools, an insurmountable pride in our young co-creator team, and new possibilities of what we can bring to our work.   Just as a bit of background, Justine and I are directors of Rowan Tree Dramatherapy. Founded in 2013 as a Community Interest Company, we provide a Dramatherapy Service across Kent where we are committed and dedicated to working within the community to ensure Dramatherapy is both accessible and useful. We work extensively with young people, many of whom who do not live with their birth parents. Thanks to Children in Need, we have been able to offer fully funded group therapy each year for the past seven years to Children in Care. With each group, we create a space together that offers the potential to experience a sense of belonging that they have agency over moulding, shaping, and making their own. They have a voice, they are heard, and their feelings and emotions are validated. However, outside the therapy room, all too often these young people have had no choice and no voice, in what has happened in their past, and sometimes in their present, we always strive to support agency and wondered how could their voices become tangible?   Together, we tentatively considered how a piece of therapeutic theatre could be created and how this might look. We knew we did not have the knowledge or skill set to create the vision we had (it had to be spot on) and knew that it would take a theatre company that had great integrity and experience to pull this idea off.
