In an ever-connected world, community and inclusion are at the forefront of debate across the globe.
Through theatre Permanent Inclusion will take you on an immersive guided tour exploring how society perceives the identities of those who have been excluded from mainstream education; specifically tackling whether perception informs or intersects reality.
They used to say it takes a village to raise a child; long gone are the days of villages in the nation’s capitals, yet we all still mourn a sense of lost community. Permanent Inclusion takes audiences on a journey through the lived experiences of those who find themselves on the periphery of mainstream education while celebrating their achievements and showcasing their talents. Children who must navigate social, emotional and behavioural challenges, now more than ever, must feel a sense of community as they begin their journey into adulthood.
Few will have heard of Alternative Provisions (AP), even fewer will be aware of the transformational work that takes place in these settings. Permanent Inclusion will reconnect Waltham Forest’s community with the young people who have attended AP providers across the borough, both past and present, and begin to reform that village we all pine for.
There will be three performances at 12noon, 2pm and 5pm on Saturday 26 October at Belmont Park School, 101 Leyton Green Rd, Leyton, London E10 6DB.
