Bounce runs creative learning residencies in schools and alternative education settings. Our residencies are bespoke to the individual settings and groups we work with.
Artists work alongside educators and/or lead individual projects to contribute to both curricular and non curricular activities. We also work with schools to identify funding opportunities to provide further opportunities for children and young people to access creative practices.
Our current residences:
Bounce has been proud to be artists in resident at Anstee Bridge for the past five years. Anstee supports vulnerable young people at risk of becoming NEET due to complex emotional and social issues. The programme celebrates confidence through creativity. As artists in residence, our role has been to support the development of the programme.
This has led to exciting collaborations including Emoji and Fried Chicken. Two professionally performed pieces of theatre exploring gang culture, domestic violence and social media.
CRANFORD COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Arts Practitioners from Bounce will be resident at Cranford Community College for a second academic year. We form part of an interdisciplinary team of artists and educators who are exploring the opportunity to collaborate on developing a creative curriculum for Years 7-9.
Students will have an opportunity to explore interdisciplinary practice on a range of projects that allow them to consider themselves as a citizen, as part of a community and their relationship to the city.
Alongside this, we are working with the Creative Arts Lead to identify funding and secure opportunities for new creative projects.
