PenPal Power!

This winter, the Grimm & Co Owl Post are taking on the extra task of taking letters to people in South Yorkshire who really need some joy. What would you write to someone who was feeling in need of a good friend?

Grimm & Co are joining Sheffield Churches Council for Community Care (SCCCC) to send letters to the older community and spark some friendships.

The aim of the session will be to ignite young people’s imaginations and come up with tales which can be sent to older people as part of SCCCC’s popular pen pal scheme.

Ages: 11-14

Location: Garden Room, Clifton Park Museum

Time: 4:00 – 5:30pm

Who or what has power over you, and what do you want to say to them?

This simple but vital question is at the heart of the award-winning performance and digital theatre project, Truth to Power Café. Truth to Power Café has toured across the world – and now it’s coming to Rotherham. And this very special edition of the café is aimed at YOU: 14-to-25 year olds who have something to say!
Truth to Power Café will take place at Rotherham Civic Theatre on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th February 2022. Do you want to be part of it? Do you have a story to tell, or a message you want to share?

If the answer is ‘yes!’, and you’re aged 14-25 and live in Rotherham, then you can submit an entry to be part of the show here: https://www.truthtopower.co.uk/signupnow

Your answers could be positive, silly, serious, critical, thoughtful, reflective – anything and everything goes!

And if you want to explore your ideas alongside other young people, the brilliant Hive South Yorkshire are running a special Truth To Power writing workshop at Riverside Library at 5pm on Monday 15th November.
