    Need

    The basic ethos of PACE is to provide a service to all of the community, using theatre, in its broadest terms, to educate and entertain. Young people have decreasing access to involvement in the Arts whilst communication skills are often lacking due to the nature and methods of communication between young people.

    Solution

    To enable the user to gain personal and social skills, communication, confidence and self awareness amongst others, and to stimulate through active and passive participation an interest in the Arts and therefore create and enhance the audiences of tomorrow as well as allowing young people and others to examine and explore contemporary issues.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    TIE and peer education are at the centre of PACE’s work . Our unique Participatory Performance Projects have toured thousands of schools, allowing pupils to perform to their peers on issues such as bullying, drug awareness, healthy living, sectarianism and other topical subjects which complement the current curriculum. The combination of original music, peer education and rehearsals that are great fun, has proved immensely popular.
