Bridging The Gap

bridging gap

Tricycle Theatre, 269 Kilburn High Road, London NW6 7JR

2-5pm, FREE

The Tricycle Theatre and Counterpoints Arts (the charity behind Platforma) invite you to take part in a conversation about the value of the arts for young EAL learners.

The afternoon will provide a chance for artists, practitioners and organisations working with asylum seekers, refugees and young migrants to share experiences of working with new English speakers and discuss the question:

How can we work more closely with schools to engage young migrants learning English for the first time?

Since 2008, through its Minding the Gap project, the Tricycle has been using drama and theatre as a tool to help recent young migrants, asylum seekers and refugees to learn English. We are keen to share some of the work we’ve done and to hear from others working with EAL learners in schools and other learning contexts.

We’re also enthusiastic to hear from those who might want to explore working in this area, or who are looking to build new connections. We hope conversations started at this event will be the start of further discussions at the Platforma Conference in Leicester this November.

RSVP to, or on 0207 625 0134.
