How will Dare You be delivered?

Dare You can be delivered flexibly based on your requirements, or to focus on specific skills mentioned above.

We suggest it is best run as a 2-day immersive programme that can cater for up to 12 participants and is typically held at the award winning Bradbury Studios in London, the creative hub of Graeae. The programme is aimed at employees at all levels. We can also offer follow up sessions to ensure what was learned is embedded into your business in the longer term.

Day 1: Dare you … Be yourself? Working creatively through art, storytelling and acting to identify key stories about our past, present and future that reveal our conscious beliefs and their impact on others, increasing our self-awareness and recognition of diversity amongst the group.

Day 2: Dare You … Step up and lead? Participants work together with theatre professionals to communicate their stories authentically and effectively, culminating with an evening presentation.
