Express and Create
What actually happens in the sessions?
The Express and Create project encourages participants to explore their own ideas, interests and preferences. This is achieved through discussion, pictorial prompts, signing and role-play. Members work individually and in groups using a range of creative media.

We begin from a point of personal interest and from themes or relevant issues and use careful questioning, relaxation techniques and discussion to help develop ideas. We then gradually introduce a range of activities as these ideas are explored and practice expressing them in different ways. Activities include:

Story Telling

  • Developing own ideas for characters – researching and designing
  • Using story boards and computers to create comic strips
  • Using drama and photography to create stories
  • Making props
  • Tackling difficult issues through story telling, drama and role-play

  • Making handmade storybooks
  • Papier-mache techniques for mask making
  • Puppet making
  • Model making
  • Printing
