Arts company Art with Heart worked with UTC students to explore equality and discrimination ahead of National Anti-Bullying Week. The award-winning

arts company have been supported by the Police Crime Commissioner to deliver a series of workshops exploring equality past, present and future across Greater Manchester schools.

 

The thought-provoking workshop was born out of a need for open, safe and eloquent dialogue around issues of discrimination and bullying and has been informed by recent research conducted by anti-bullying charity Ditch the Label. Research collected showed that over 1.5 million young people (50%) have been bullied within the past year, 145,800 (19%) of these were bullied everyday.

Rachel Moorhouse of Art with Heart says, “We do a huge amount of work with young people and see the devastating impact that bullying has on their health, behaviour and self-esteem. Our workshops will offer young people the freedom and opportunity to explore what discrimination and equality mean, who they are, what they want their world to look like and how to make change happen.”
