Lynx theatre in education
If we can make young people more confident in their beliefs then they will be much more likely to act on them when they become voters, legislators and decision makers in their own right.
Since 2002, the Trust has been developing and delivering an educational programme – Lynx Theatre in Education (TIE) - on animal and conservation issues. This is primarily presented through commissioned theatrical pieces and is accompanied by detailed teachers’ packs, designed to inspire the imagination and directly engage young people’s interest and stimulate their involvement. It also includes the provision of speakers and distribution of information.
Lynx TIE works with professional playwrights and directors who have considerable experience of working in children’s theatre, and for television and radio.
Play in a Day
We do not receive Government funding. Instead, we raise funds through public donations and our own efforts. Schools we visited with our tours identified a lack of dramatic input into the curriculum. We therefore devised a (much copied) project called Play in a Day, in order to fill this gap. The profits from this project go towards our ambitious theatrical projects, which we hope will result in a new respect for our fellow creatures.
Following the success of ‘Dance To My Tune’, Lynx was asked to visit schools and to work directly with students on the subjects of vulnerability and exploitation, whether perceived weaknesses or differences bring out the best or the worst in us, and where real strength lies? As a result, projects have been developed on such subjects as world citizenship, whether rich nations should have any obligation towards poor nations and whether the human race has an obligation to the planet as a whole.
