Kindness

Kindness

Urban Stories is one of Bounce Theatre's current projects. Students from Chessington Community Colleges are cocreating with artists to create a blueprint for a new city.

Fundamental to their design is the concept of kindness - how we'd slowly change the streets we lived in if we practiced kindness and celebrated the strength of the human spirit. Deep? Yes. As one pointed out to me 'What do you expect from a bunch of 14 year olds?"

Yet in the fragile climate we seem to exist in, they are I think on the money. The rest of this blog belongs to Amber, our Creative Learning Manager who has developed their ideas and created a resource for schools to explore the ideas of cities and kindness in the classroom.
