Sketches can add a dynamic and entertaining element to a conference and are often one of the best ways of getting an issue across.
Examples of issues we have addressed at previous conferences include, but are not limited to, issues affecting young women, internet safety, gender stereotypes, Patriarchy, 100 Years of Votes for Women, Human Rights, Alcohol and the Rights of the Child.
We design and deliver workshop packages for groups on request. Please see some examples below.
'CSI Training Mission'. Suitable for Children aged 2-9 years. 'Curious Story Investigators Rita Book and Goodie Reed lead potential recruits through a rigorous training mission under the supervision of Colonel Fox, Major Elephant, Sergeant Giraffe and others. A hilarious, interactive adventure full of physical play, cognitive tasks and games to aid creativity, team work and literacy.'
Issue based Performance and Workshop packages available in community centres and schools on themes ranging from anti prejudice to patriarchy. We will perform material as part of the workshop and can take commissions to tailor something specific for you.
