Welcome to the first post on Poetry & Motion!
It’s been incredibly busy since the concept of P&M was born. It had been on the ‘back burner’ for some time previously but sprung into life simultaneously with the excitement of collaborating with Bedford Free School to run a Workshop for students there and winning Sage Tank in January 2017.
Following the excitement of the win and all that encompasses, the real work began to bring it to life – a new fun and creative way to educate and express emotion – leading to improving the emotional lives of teenagers, young adults and for that matter, any adult who’d enjoy or benefit from improving their confidence, self-esteem, over-coming barriers and importantly the softer skills that Employers are crying out for – conversational ability, engagement, initiative, team work, motivation and managing the self.
Whether your child is a school, college or university student, an employee or unemployed, or disadvantaged in some way or would just love to get creative with others in one of our planned weekly activity classes, then Poetry & Motion is for you! But I wouldn’t want adults to miss out on the fantastic time we’re going to have – self-improvement has never been this much fun!
Lots more exciting news to share and I’ll be blogging again soon. In the meantime, please do read around the website, feel free to comment or drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.
