Actionwork at Glastonbury Festival 2013
Building on the success of the Actionwork Anti-Bullying Resource Centre at Glasto 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 (there was no festival in 2012 due to the Olympics) Actionwork have been invited back to the Glastonbury Festival in 2013 to provide anti-bullying resources for tens of thousands of festival goers.
Actionwork is the official anti-bullying resource for Glastonbury Festival.
Actionwork will be performing 'Silent Scream' a show about Bullying and Cyberbullying at the festival in 2013 - these shows will be free to all festival goers. We will also be providing loads of fun and creative workshops and other sessions - all free to festival goers.
Bullying affects thousands of people in the UK every week. Some so badly that they kill themselves. Glastonbury festival organisers are working with Actionwork to help find solutions to bullying.
This year the Glastonbury Festival will be providing a specialist dedicated anti-bullying team on site at the festival. Internationally acclaimed theatre and film group “Actionwork” will be providing interactive anti-bullying creative workshop sessions, anti-bullying shows, support, and anti-bullying resources and information. In addition the Actionwork team will be providing some multi-cultural storytelling for peace and, using the creative arts, will help people raise their self esteem and personal confidence, while trying to find ways to end violence in our schools and in our society. Workshops will be energised and a whole heap of fun.
Sessions and resources will be for adults and children. Please join us in the Green Futures field for one of our workshops, some information, to collect some anti-bullying freebies, to sign our anti-bullying petition or just to have a chat.
The Actionwork team have performed shows all over the world and produce Britain’s national anti-bullying conference for young people every year. Our saying is: “Empower yourself – ipoweri”.
