A girl is sat in a classroom, in the background you can see other children working. The girl in the foreground is wearing a red checked summer dress. She is holding a pencil in one hand, you can see a piece of paper on the desk. She is looking up in amazement with her mouth open. On the table you can see some pencils and glue in a grey plastic pot.

Why support us?

The children were so excited by where they had been, what they had seen, heard, smelled, tasted, touched and been told, and were so powerfully motivated by the characters they had met, that they came away filled with an urgent need to communicate. [...] This vivid and emotionally charged immersive experience successfully kindled their creative energies and their enthusiasm for speaking and writing – all the teacher had to do was to fan the flames. It was a joy to behold.

Elizabeth Booth, Headteacher, Dalmain Primary School, Lewisham, on working with Punchdrunk Enrichment

I can’t remember seeing anything quite like it and I can understand why the children – and the teachers! – are mesmerised by it. We don’t always see the arts, creativity and schools working together well but this was a good example of how it can be done effectively… It will stay in my mind as a really good example of arts organisations working with schools.
