At Voicebox, we believe in learning through doing. That's why we offer drama-based interactive workshops to help participants unpack challenging conversations in a safe and inclusive environment.

 

Led by a team of expert facilitators, all our workshops are 90 minutes long, however we can adapt any of our workshops in length/content to suit your organisation's needs. 

 

*Workshops and assemblies can be delivered individually, or as part of a package (i.e. an assembly to a year group followed by a series of workshops). Check out our assemblies here.
