On Wednesday 27 July, we were proud to share Believe in your Sen, an exhibition premiering two cutting edge films and a piece of art, all co-created with professional artists, teachers and young people, as part of the National Theatre’s new initiative Speak Up.
The films and artwork explored equality, sexual harassment and mental health, some of the most prevalent issues facing today’s young people. Visitors wrote down their comments on a feedback wall during the event.

Over 100 visitors viewed the exhibition, including some of the students who were involved in the project, their families and teachers, and members of the public, alongside Theatre Royal Wakefield staff, board members, and the artists who co-created the work.
We are currently recruiting artists and facilitators from across a range of artforms to be part of Speak Up here in Wakefield, working with our selected secondary schools.
