Our action based creative anti-bullying workshops demonstrate that anti-bullying works when action is taken.The Actionwork method of dealing with bullying is about creative action. It is about doing as opposed to thinking about, listening to or being told to do something, and allowing people to see ideas in action, performing topics from many different angles and expressing them in many different ways. Creative action allows us to share, to guide, and experience, in real time and unreal time, in safety and in partnership. We can see ourselves here and imagine ourselves there; we can see ourselves in others and imagine how they see us. Creative action methods are flexible and can be used with all kinds of groups and with all kinds of abilities including different age groups and mixed ability groups.

Quotes on Creativity

Creative Practitioners:

Leading creative practitioners such as Richard Schechner, Augusto Boal, Paulo Freire, Steven Reisner, Sue Jennings, Ken Robinson and many others discuss how theatre and creativity can transform problematic human interactions into positive, connected and empowering experiences.

Quote by Augusto Boal:

Theatre is the capacity possessed by humans to observe themselves in action, of seeing themselves in the act of seeing, of thinking their emotions and of being moved by their thoughts. They can see themselves here and imagine themselves there; they can see themselves today and imagine themselves tomorrow.

Patricia Sternberg

Dealing creatively with bullying

Remember that it is not conflict that presents problems, but how we deal with conflicts that is important.
