Outreach

We're passionate about giving school students of all ages opportunities to explore, learn and get enthused about studying the Arts at Bristol. Find out more about the activities we offer below:

Insights into Philosophy

Insights into Philosophy is a 6-8 week after-school course for KS3 students, introducing pupils to broad philosophical topics such as: identity over time, what makes us human, happiness, freedom and responsibility, and fairness and society.

The project is delivered in-school by students from the Department of Philosophy and culminates in a taster day at the University of Bristol.

The next course will commence in January 2019.

Theatre Collection taster workshops

The University of Bristol Theatre Collection offers pupils of all ages bespoke curriculum-led workshops designed to enrich pupils’ understanding of their set texts. Our workshops can be tailored for pupils of all ages and are suited to class size groups.

In addition to subject-specific workshops, we welcome all students to attend our Theatre Collection exhibitions.

GCSE Music Set Works Concert at the Victoria Rooms

As part of our lunch-time concert series, in partnership with Bristol Plays Music and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the Department of Music hosts an annual GCSE set works concert for local pupils to attend in the Victoria Rooms.

GCSE analysis is supplied alongside live performances of pieces that feature in the GCSE set works curriculum, providing students with a superb opportunity to enrich their understanding of pieces that feature on the exam syllabus.

Concert dates:

Friday 9 February 2018
Friday 30 November 2018

Performing Shakespeare

The Department of Theatre is passionate about providing young people with the opportunity to see traditional texts performed in new ways.

In Autumn 2018, the department is hosting the Volcano theatre company at the Wickham Theatre, giving year 12 pupils the opportunity to explore contemporary performance techniques and gain new insights into Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
