On 30th September 2021, Icon and Theatre31 invited teachers based in Medway and Sheppey to the Brook Theatre for a specially created TeachMeet, launching the Theatre31 Artsmark Resource Pack and our free Schools’ Programme.

We passionately believe that theatre and the performing arts have the power to boost confidence, free creativity and change young lives for the better. The TeachMeet event allowed us to share our enthusiasm with teachers and local practitioners, and invite them on our mission to create youth-led arts opportunities for young people in Medway and Sheppey.

The evening was an opportunity to let these teachers know all about the free opportunities open to them and their students, as well as meet the Theatre31 team and even try out some of our tried and tested drama games for young people!
