Anti-Bullying Week

Last week it was the UK’s anti-bullying week and the Diana Award organised  events all over the country inviting young people to come and explore the issue of bullying through creative workshops led by top talent/celebrities.

At the London event,  Positive Arts joined forces with TV’s  Carrie Grant,  Twist and Pulse, Matt Lapinskas (Anthony Moon- EastEnders), Craig Roberts (Actor- Submarine, Tracey Beaker, CCBC Young Dracula), Arthur Landon (Writer/Director) and some of the Waterloo Road stars .

Kids had a choice of taking part in graffiti, dance, singing, rap/poetry and much more! A live show featuring some of the best work was a grand finale to the day.

The Diana-Award programme trains young people across the UK to be anti-bullying ambassadors in their schools and communities.

Later that week Positive Arts travelled up to Wigan for another day of workshops, training and fun!  The workshops give the children inspiration, practical ideas and top tips to beat bullying.

The standard of work throughout both days was incredibly high with the children putting forward really great creative ideas.

Ultimately, the children go on to be ambassadors who help to prevent bullying and ensure everyone feels safe and happy in their school.

Here are videos of the events:
