Scottish Peer Education Network (SPEN) Meeting

On 27th September, CKUK attended the SPEN networking meeting and presented on the challenges of using dramatisation within peer education programmes.

The meeting was well attended, bringing together a variety of art and performance based organisations. CKUK demonstrated how non-art based organisations can effectively make use of dramatisation and explained some of the challenges that non-art based organisations can often face when engaging in drama activities.

CKUK's own presentation was followed by a Peer Theatre workshop by Fast Forward and a talk on 'Engaging young people through Arts' by Out of the Blue / Art Core.

Interesting dicussions were had on how Arts organisations can link up with other third sector organisations in order to broaden the reach of the Arts as well as the funding implications of this.
