HELP BREAK THE CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE!
Make theatre with professional directors and actors that will help change young people’s lives.
‘Fragments’ is a ground-breaking project, designed to help young people across the country deal with the trauma of parental separation and divorce.
We are seeking a small group of talented young people to work with outstanding theatre professionals in a day long workshop. You will be sharing your experiences of separation and divorce using innovative theatre techniques in this workshop hosted by Oxfordshire Family Mediation and OYAP Trust.
You will help create the beginnings of ‘Fragments’, a project that will see your ideas and concepts turned into workshops in schools, and then into a series of films online that will support young people who are experiencing parental separation.
We will be discussing some potentially difficult material in this workshop, which we will support you with. In order to make a difference we need to break the conspiracy of silence surrounding parental separation and tell it how it really is from a young person’s perspective.
If you are 15-21 years old and think you have something to offer, apply by sending the application form to email@example.com

Youth of Bicester
A dynamic group of young people in Bicester have joined forces to create their very own youth action team, ironically referring to themselves as ‘the YoBs’ - the Youth of Bicester. With the motto ‘Changing the community for the better: young people inspiring and being inspired!’ their mission is simple; to make exciting and lively things happen in their community, using creativity as a catalyst for inspiring change.
Bicester’s young change-makers have been busy creating magic in Bicester – transforming empty shops into pop-up recording studios, drawing Masterclasses and art installations; running their own community radio station; giving away free books in the name of Bicester Book Feast; and spreading a viral epidemic of loveliness through their kindness missions.
