Every child, parent and teacher should experience the freedom of a Theatre of Learning
Since the beginning Big Wide Talk has sought to demonstrate that education (including art and science), care, management, research, and economic development must be part of single, locally delivered services for children, parents, schools and communities. The Big Wide Talk model of social engagement and support that includes Theatres of Learning, reaches the needs and resources of people and communities. Many examples are presented in this website.
We are currently working to write up how the model developed and its impacts, to serve as a platform for future development.
We are also working to spark a new generation of Big Wide Talk dialogue via this website, Twitter and the Big Wide Talk Facebook page. We hope the parents we have worked with, and others new to the work, will share their experience here in the UK with people in other countries.
Presently we are exploring the lives of some women in South Africa. We begin with Mary Burton. Beva Runciman, another person who participated in the South African fight for freedom, will follow her. Humanity aside what these women exemplify is the way in which learning and reflection nurture empowerment, the key driver for education and the support of children.
