Innovative Participatory Workshops for Refugee Women

Scheherazade Initiatives runs free weekly participatory theatre workshops for migrant and refugee women that offer a fun and engaging complement to traditional language learning and integration programmes.  Through creative games and exercises, role play, character creation and scene development, we explore issues that refugee women face when arriving in the UK and enable the women to ‘try out’ alternative scenarios to achieving their integration goals. Past workshops have focused on issues such as navigating the health and education systems, building relationships across cultures, dealing with intergenerational tensions and marital challenges, and, critically, building the self-confidence, personal leadership and communication skills to empower women to make a home for themselves here.  The programmes are funded by the UK National Lottery Community Fund which makes participation free for all.  Click here for further information and we would be grateful if you could please spread awareness of this project.

If you want to be kept updated about our work using theatre to empower migrant and refugee populations, please sign up to our newsletter here

Curious Chemical Catalysts

Explore Chemical Catalysts and see some amazing reactions with our Imperial Researcher Richard Kong.
About this Event
From the food we eat to the air we breathe, we all rely on chemical reactions, but some of these reactions need a helping hand. This is where our researchers look to catalysts, materials that help reactions happen!
In this workshop you will learn about the basics of chemical bonds through some exciting demonstrations delivered by Imperial researcher Richard Kong, before learning more about Imperial’s work developing new catalysts and why they are so important.
After picking the chemical reaction of your choice (perhaps turning carbon dioxide into diamonds or breaking down plastic) you will learn about the features of catalysts by making a catalyst monster. At the end of the workshop, we shall look at some real catalysts on the large screen and compare them to our own.
