Over the course of the 2018-19 academic year, our team travelled the length and breadth of the UK to reach over 34,000 young people with our various TIE productions.
TIE shows tap into key issues facing young people such as knife crime, extremism and radicalisation, the British Values, self-worth and forgiveness.
Recently, Saltmine have been privileged to receive funding from Building a Stronger Britain Together (BSBT) within the Home Office and from Walsall For All.
This has enabled us to reach 33 primary schools in the Birmingham/Walsall area in our Autumn 2019 tour of In Their Shoes, our ‘unity in diversity’ production promoting the British Values.
Our knife crime production, Switch Up, and our domestic abuse show, Faultlines, have also secured funding.
We will be taking these productions into secondary schools to open a dialogue and also in the hope that they will transform young lives.
We are always looking to partner with local authorities and churches to perform TIE productions in primary and secondary schools.
