WIRED DIFFERENTLY

A group of teenagers ask - What makes you different?

 

Created and performed by pupils at Ganton School Wired Differently investigates school, socialising and growing up with a learning disability through this site-specific celebration of diversity.

 

Wired Differently was performed on 28th June 2017 as part of the Hull 2017 City of Culture Programme at Ganton School. The performance was live streamed, with screenings in Libraries across Hull.

 

THIS IS ABOUT BEING NORMAL. THIS IS ABOUT BEING DIFFERENT. THIS IS ABOUT MAKING AEROPLANES. THIS IS ABOUT US.

WIRES CROSSED

In December 2017 The Herd worked with pupils at Ganton School to pick up the wires they left after Wired Differently. Together we looked at the way we're all wired, investigating our own mental health and the ways we can support each other through times of worry, sadness and anger.

A core group of pupils worked with The Herd to deliver performance, films and activities with other pupils, staff, parents and carers at Ganton - starting an important conversation about feelings, and making sure we don't get our wires crossed when we talk about mental health.
