Here at the Magdalen Estate HQ, we are always on the look out for great news stories that really help reflect the positive attitudes of our community, and how hard we work together, particularly when they involve young people.
The youths attending the Making Impactive Change (MIC) project, held at the Training and Resource Centre on Alma Road, Wandsworth, recently had a visit from two of the actors who starred in the Kidulthood and Adulthood films, who ran workshops with the participants, to help show them that making good life choices might be easier than they thought. The session included role play exercises, mini acting games, finishing off with their own ten-minute devised play. Organiser Natalie Mayhew said that having two influential figures, who the young people looked up to, was a great idea. Both the actors brought home the point of working hard to achieve what you want, and the participants responded well to that message.
The MIC is not stopping here, however, and has further workshops running on February, exploring the themes of acceptable behaviour and building self-esteem.
If you or a friendly neighbour has caught wind of a great news story that involves the Magdalen Estate or the surrounding areas, please do let us know, and we’ll make sure we let the rest of our readers know about it, by relaying it in our blog. We look forward to hearing from you!Google+
