Title & Reference code
Multinlingual  Performance Activity
24 months
The exciting new Multilingual Performance Project will showcase and celebrate the multilingual nature of schools and demonstrate how multilingualism can interact creatively with teaching in the classroom, promoting both taught languages and the use of community languages. The project will reach across England and Wales and will run from Spring 2018 to Summer 2020.
The main aims of the project include building confidence among teachers in conducting creative work in school, increasing awareness of the creative dimension of languages, and generating enthusiasm for language learning.
The project will involve different forms of performance from short sketches, play readings and news broadcasts through to full theatre productions. The scope of each project and the participants involved will be based on the school’s interests, resources and needs. Commitment can be low and performances can be small-scale, avoiding unnecessary additional pressure on teacher time. We will help establish relationships between participating schools and their local theatres, who will support these multilingual performances. The project will also provide online resources which will complement in-school activity.
