A day-long masterclass workshopping Punchdrunk Enrichment's groundbreaking approach to creating experiences for children, young people and teachers.

Since 2008 Punchdrunk Enrichment has inspired and engaged participants, taking the company’s innovative practice into communities and schools. Integral to this work is the same commitment to exemplary design and performance that defines Punchdrunk’s large-scale productions for adult audiences. Projects include The Lost Lending Library  and teacher-led adventure A Small Tale.

This masterclass will focus on creating experiences for schools that are both unforgettable adventures and invaluable learning experiences for pupils and teachers. Punchdrunk Enrichment will introduce their techniques and core principles, before leading participants through the process of imagining and creating their own projects, culminating in a sharing and Q&A.

This cross-discipline workshop will be practical and is aimed at those interested in engaging children and young people in immersive stories or experiences. We would encourage applications from a range of artists including makers, designers, facilitators, performers and teachers.
