Actionwork tours all over the UK. Specialist creative workshops, anti-bullying workshops, INSET, training for anti-bullying week, programmes for anti-bullying month and other specialist anti-bullying programmes througout the year. Creative Anti Bullying training works, is fun and educational.
Actionwork is a member of the Anti-Bullying Alliance and has undertaken research and made films for the Anti-Bullying Alliance. In addition Actionwork has made anti-bullying films for the Department of Education and many schools around the country. Actionwork is the leading theatre-in-education and social theatre provider for dealing with issues of bullying in the UK. In addition Actionwork is the winner of the Anti Bullying Flame Award.
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.
Anti Bullying Roadshow
The Anti-Bullying Roadshow links in with the theme for anti-bullying week and is playful, positive and powerful. It is an excellent educational programme full of surprises; fun, energised, creative, educational and includes music, song, dance, performance, interactivity, a competition, anti-bullying strategies, cyberbullying, e-safety and a whole lot more. The Roadshow lasts an hour and can be performed to large groups if required (eg a whole year group at a time). Details about the roadshow can be found here. Schools can have a maximum of four roadshows in a day. We have two versions of the roadshow, one for primary schools and one for secondary schools and colleges. We also have an anti-bullying puppet show for reception and year one classes.

Quotes on Creativity
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.
Dealing creatively with bullying
Remember that it is not conflict that presents problems, but how we deal with conflicts that is important.
