Being a Boy

Hosted by Arts University Bournemouth (AUB), five Year 8 students took part in a two-day Acting workshop at AUB’s Palace Court Theatre. The workshop was delivered by Dan Boyden, an experienced theatre maker who works with the British Council as a lead consultant designing their new global youth programme and is co-director of international arts collective AWE.

The workshop was an opportunity for young men to connect and reflect on what’s important to them, as they look at what boyhood has meant to them and ahead to being a man. Through a creative group work process and the development of short piece of forum theatre, they shared their own experiences and perspectives on masculinity, to surface some of the challenges and opportunities that young men today are facing.
