R&A Collaborations offer bespoke workshops for all ages and settings. Arron Fowler (The A in R&A) has had a decade of experience delivering high quality and emmersive community work. Richard is learning fast.
We are able to adapt our process to incorporate many facets of learning into our activities. Wether it is soft skills or curriculum topics we are able to develop schemes of work that enable yong people to develop and grow.
Drawing on educational models such as P4C, Mantle Of The Expert, Reggio Emilio Aproach, Steiner and other alternative ideas we are keen to develop holistic activies that are child centred and human scale. The principles that we adopt for creating our own films are easily transfered to an education setting. We will always wield time as a tool to extract every ounce of potential from our endevours, leaving participants feeling inspired, valued, capable and exhausted. We believe in working hard and being nice. We value process and product equally and strive to have a quality product at the end of an inspired experience. At the end of each workshop we will have produced a high quality complete film, whether that is a 2 hour session or a week long project. In any of our projects the following opportunities will be incorporated: photography, sound recording, writing and spoken word, editing, thinking, feeling, talking and opinion forming. This structure allows us to incorporate anything else that might be pertinent to your group, be that world cultures, sports, bullying, numeracy, careers, cookery and pop star chart domination! We embrace challenges and have yet to turn one down, do feel free to make us sweat.
R&A Collaborations have current CRBs in place and Public Liability. We are able to work in all settings, Schools, Youth Groups, Special needs groups, PRUs, Adult groups etc. Again no challenge too great no request too small.
Daily rate for an R&A workshop is £400, discounts available for bulk bookings and reduced fees can be arranged for truely exeptional activities or deserving young people.
We are happy to write project proposals designed for your specific situation. Please email us with your requirements, topics or issues and we shall propose a project that utilises our strengths and your potential.
