Follow Your Dreams’ Dream Big Workshops
Dream Big Workshops is the charity’s newest project. We deliver workshops with children and young people who have a learning disability in conjunction with schools and youth groups across the country.
All our workshops have the aim of inspiring participants to be ambitious, to have a ‘can-do’ attitude, and to aim high for their future successes. We do this through a series of motivational activities including the main practical workshop, which offers participants the opportunity to try something a little different – for instance puppetry, dance or drama - to have fun, and possibly even discover a new talent or dream for their future that they didn’t previously know they had.
Our current workshop is based around puppetry. Participants will make their own puppet based on what their dream is for their future. They will also have the opportunity to enact their dream using their puppet in our puppet theatre. With a basis in cognitive theory, we believe that in order to realise our goals and dreams for our future, we first need to be able to visualise ourselves in that successful role. This is part of the reason we have chosen puppetry as a basis for our workshops, and why we believe that they will help participants to strive harder to achieve their ideal successes, whether that will be in a future career, interest or hobby.
