Sustainable Action for children and their communities

We are creating projects, engaging conversation and action towards developing a more sustainable world. Starting with human connection we want to support well being of children and their communities. Supporting parents, carers, teachers and the artists working with children to create a world for our children which is inclusive, safe and creative. We want to protect and promote joy, creativity and a kinder world. We look to provide opportunity in and out of tradition education settings, provide inclusive and accessible work, and share big and small actions you can take to support this.

Our recent ACE funding bid was to look at sustainability and this in amongst a pandemic and life has led to run Doodle Dance in a way that is not about growth but about clarity, creativity and cause.

Doodle is focusing towards protecting 4 areas of childhood: PLAY, CREATIVITY, JOY and REST.

This has meant we have decided for the meantime to currently pause its regular ‘community’ sessions and focus community outreach within its projects.

This is allowing Doodle Dance to maintain the quality of work whilst supporting artists in their needs of sustaining well being, income and their artistic practice.

Shoreham Doodle Dance Festival ‘Headlines of Hope’ is in the beginning stages of planning and we are happy to announce that ‘The Happy News’ is supporting the project with resources of their paper.  We are looking to recruit primary school groups and be exploring Solutions as a starting point of change to support in reducing eco anxiety and also mindset.

If you are a teacher working in Primary Schools in the Adur area then do get in touch for more information.

The Bee Keepers Quest is a new project which we are looking to build partners with over the next year and research with our current ACE funding, allowing us to build a funding bid for R and D for a live outdoors performance and accompanying workshops for children and families, and primary schools.
