The Pageant Workshop Group Brings Their Performance to Two Schools
Pageant is a project involving a group of young people supported by Crooked House to deliver in-person drama workshops and a performance to schools and youth projects in County Kildare and the broader region. Each workshop lasts up to 90 minutes and has a capacity for up to 25 young people. The performance lasts up to 40 minutes.
The Pageant project drama and workshops promotes several aspects of the European Union to young people. These include its values and principles; the importance of the democratic process; the EU’s programs for youth; and the European Youth Goals (these will change depending on the group’s interest, but they will be like Inclusive Societies, Equality of All Genders, and Sustainable Green Europe).
A short while ago the group (pictured above) delivered both the performance and the workshops in Patrician Boys Secondary School in Newbridge and in the Christian Brothers School in Naas. The piece is directed by Sinead Mooney, and primarily included the assistance of our EVS volunteers, who you can find more about on our People page.
