Meet the people behind Seaglass Collective
Seaglass Collective delivers stimulating and exciting arts projects exclusively for adopted children and young people across Yorkshire.
Research suggests that adopted children often do well in non-core subjects such as the arts, and yet due to their early life experience can struggle to engage with mainstream activities such as music and drama classes. Seaglass Collective therefore deliver's projects where adopted children and young people can take part within an understanding and supportive environment. Here they can build their self-esteem, creativity, communication, imagination, sense of play and confidence.
We help to remove anxiety by providing lots of information in advance, such as photos of course leaders and venues, and parents are welcome to stay in the workshop space if this is right for their child. We also invite parents to tell us about their child in advance, so we are equipped to support them.
All projects are managed and delivered by professional artists with training in adoption provided by Barnardo's.
