Be part of Barbican Box

We’re delighted to partner with the Barbican again to offer secondary schools and FE colleges the opportunity to create original theatre through their Barbican Box project.

Barbican Box at HOME aims to ignite and support theatre making in schools through a process of devising and creating work from scratch, giving students the opportunity to express their unique voices through the process of creating original work.

This takes the form of a physical box, curated by our 2019 artistic partner – Slung Low, which is opened up for teachers and students to reveal the ingredients for creating a piece of theatre. These objects act as stimuli, ideas and provocations that are designed to encourage an imaginative and adventurous approach to creating new work, giving students the opportunity to express their unique perspectives on the world around them in the process.

The programme includes:
• Teacher training at HOME
• Learning resources
• In-school workshops
• Mentoring sessions
• A showcase performance for students here at HOME

Who can apply?
Secondary schools and colleges across Greater Manchester
• You must involve at least 10 children, with a maximum amount of 30 participating students
