Nottingham residency begins: mind mapping and fast beats

After ”setting shop’ at the College Street Centre’s Studio Theatre, we opened our doors to a large group of young local people who were interested in what Raw Roads has to offer. After Conrad blew us away with his rap about bullying, and Reuben stunned us with his powerful piece “What Makes a Black Man?”, we began practicing some devising skills, using mind maps to explore possible topics for new raps/song/poems/drama works. Some more games and activities got everyone involved and creative It was an eventful day, which ended with a wicked open mike and fast beats section.
