What Are You Waiting For?

It is with great excitement that Raw Nerve Theatre Company can announce that they have been awarded a Awards for All grant of £10,000!  The grant is to be used to develop a creative programme, ‘What Are You Waiting For?’, to be offered in 10 Birmingham based secondary schools and community groups, exploring the issue of sex and relationships.

The project aims to raise self esteem and aspirations amongst the young people we will be working with, to help them explore the different choices available to them.  The programme will consist of an hour-long show tackling issues such as underage pregnancy, STI’s and self worth, followed by an interactive workshop to allow young people to delve into the issues raised in the performance for themselves.

The project will be developed off the back of a similar successful project Raw Nerve has been running in partnership with the Riverside Youth Team over the past year, exploring the issue of sex and relationships from a Christian perspective.  The responses from young people and schools have been fantastic, particularly during question and answer sessions with the Raw Nerve and Youth Team staff.

This is the third grant we have been given by the Awards for All scheme, so we are extremely grateful for their continued support of the work we are doing in the Birmingham community.
