Express Yourself: SAFE Project worked with students with behaviour management issues
from Cricket Green School, which caters for young people with moderate learning difficulties.
The students worked with specialist staff in a series of art therapy based workshops. Each
workshop aimed to develop the student's awareness of their own anger, and how they have
learnt to express it to enable their literacy levels. The children participated in parkour, physical
theatre, drama and art therapy exercises, all of which were documented in films and
photography. The project finished with an exhibition and auction of the art work and films
produced by the students, allowing them to see their work valued and celebrated by a wide
variety of people. There was a quantifiable improvement in literacy levels and behaviours as a
result of the project. The project is running for a second term.

JOHN MOORES UNIVERSITY
I researched a comparative study between Northern European and British Education systems
and for my final thesis analysed Therapeutic Practices of Movement on the Self in Juvenile
Institutions, referring closely to Michel Foucault's Discipline and Punishment: The birth of The
Prison.
During my time as Head of Drama at Oakhill Secure Training Centre and collating my research
of Foucault's Groupe d'Information sur les Prisons and Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed I
created a weekly '4Rum' which provided a platform for each class to express political
concerns, which was then acted out to the rest of the group. Due to its success a monthly
magazine and club was created, which is still live today.
