MADD Day 2013

A day of cross-cultural creative art forms for 240 Year 9 students in Chingford Foundation School, with something for everyone

ETO was delighted to be invited to Chingford Foundation School again this July for our second MADD (Music, Art, Drama and Dance) day for the whole of Year 9. The aim of the day was to bring the arts alive within the school and give exposure of many different art forms to the students, allowing them to express creativity and individualism across the various disciplines.

There were 8 different workshops throughout the day. Students were physically challenged by capoeira workshops given by Kabula Capoeira and circus skills led by facilitators from Circus Space, and tried their popping skills in breakdance workshops with B-Better.
Students experienced a further taste of Brazil in samba percussion, movement and history workshops run by Rhythms of the City. Their focus and teamwork were exercised in puppetry workshops run by Little Angel Puppet Theatre, and in jazz songwriting workshops led by Pete Letanka.

Visual art workshops included stop motion animation led by artist Monica Rivas, and Rangoli, led by Neemita Dabhi, which used dyed rice and coconut to create vibrant designs on the floor of the art studio.

“It was interactive and there was more than one choice of activity which I liked very much.”
“I liked the jazz class because I found it cool making a song.”
“We did things and learnt new things and I did stuff I have never done before.”
“It was fun, energetic, and alive and we learnt a lot from it.”

We are very grateful to all the practitioners who led their workshops and to the staff and students at Chingford Foundation School for an incredibly active but thoroughly rewarding day.
