The Flying Seagull Project

The Seagulls travel to the poorest parts of the world delivering fun therapy in the form of Art, Music, Circus and theatrical workshops. 'WE'RE JUST AFTER YOUR LAUGHTER! '

Founded 2010

  • Mission statement

    The flying Seagull project was founded over four years ago, by a team of actors, dancer's, clowns and musicians, determined to make a difference in the world.
    What we do is create music, dance and arts workshops and interactive shows designed to stimulate and encourage the imagination. We provide a safe and supportive environment for the children or adults to find their confidence and to explore. We work closely with the staff so that we can inspire them to new ideas and to more progressive ways of working, techniques that we take as standard over here. The aim is that when we part company they can continue to progress, and to make this possible we also endeavour to leave the materials and resources needed.
    We work indiscriminately with orphans, street teens, mentally ill, vulnerable adults, the elderly, isolated communities, and terminally ill children. In each place we adapt to the needs of the group and ensure the experience is enjoyed by all. This can be an interactive show, a staff skills swap, a hands on workshop, or even a week long theatre production!
    The difference some time of imaginative and non verbal based experimentation can make is incredible. For most of these kids, just some attention and intensive interaction one on one is a rarity. For those that have been abandoned, it is very much needed!
    We have funded ourselves almost entirely from events and personal sponsorship, but to expand our impact we hope for, and deepen our work we are seeking more support
