Leeds Meets Shakespeare
The Leeds Meets Shakespeare project aimed to use Shakespeare plays in the classroom to raise the attainment of Year One pupils who have English as an additional language.
Led by Dr Claire Chambers, the project was piloted in six Leeds primary schools with large numbers of British-Pakistani and -Bangladeshi pupils.
Tribe performed extracts from #tribeshakespeare400 and hosted the main event at the Carriageworks in Leeds
Supported by Professor Shirley Anne Tate, we used the format of Tribe Talks, to get pupils and teachers thinking about race and education within workplace cultures and learning environments. These sessions included discussing Black and Asian history within the curriculum, educator awareness, reflection on school demographic, multiculturalism and uniformity.
Civic Theatre: A Place for Towns
Tribe are partners in this unique 15-month project looking at what it means to be ‘civic’ in the arts. Initiated under national lockdown, this project will look very different to how it was conceived pre-pandemic, which intended to engender research using the Tribe Talks format, engaging participants in various ways to interrogate questions and ideas around the subject.
