Let Three's Theatre Company tell you a story - a story about what it’s like to be a little different in lots of different ways, and let’s celebrate those differences. Still I Rise Diversity Storytelling offers 6 sessions for audiences to choose from - you can choose one, two or even all 6.
Representation is so important as we can only be what we can see. Three's Theatre Company have sessions on race, disability, our planet, different family structures, types of love and emotional well being. They provide an opportunity to explore all of these topics with age appropriate stories read by a diverse group of people. Each reader is well versed in their subject matter, to encourage best representation of the topic at hand. After each story session the group encourage conversations in a safe and fun environment.
HOW WILL IT HELP YOUR STAFF?
The sessions aim to break down stigma around different topics, encouraging children to ask questions and be curious about others and create a space openness.
Stories allow us to escape, and especially now, imagination is so important to keep the children active and thinking creatively. The sessions create a space to connect local people and facilitate group sessions and conversations across NI which will encourage a sense of community and focus on the old fashioned book, but with a new inspiring focus on diversity and inclusion.

Our children are Codas (children of deaf adult) …and letting them see that everyone is different in their own way, at a young age has really helped them find confidence in their identity and find a language to discuss their thoughts.
