Yesterday morning 25 of our members, mostly aged 12-16, chose to come and join us at 9am in support of the London-wide teachers' strike.
They could have stayed in bed, but instead they spent a whole school day researching the reasons for the teachers' strike and exploring what great teaching means to them. The worked with ICT Associate Artists Emily Lim and Guy Jones, trainee directors Ibrahim Shote and David Gibert and the playwrights Alexandra Wood and Ben Ellis.
We wanted to spend the last 90 minutes of the day making something we could show to others. We wanted to make something positive that celebrated our teachers.
And with the extraordinary help of Mattia Pagura, we made this short film - one of the fastest pieces of work we've ever made - based on all the work and conversations that we'd been involved in during the day.
You can see the whole film at the top of our homepage.
