Film showing – Most Likely to Succeed
Please join us in sharing the film ‘Most Likely to Succeed’ on
Wednesday 14th September at 6pm (in the theatre space).
There is no charge for this event for parents.
‘Most Likely To Succeed is the best film ever done on the topic of school — both its past and its future. The film inspires its audiences with a sense of purpose and possibility, and is bringing school communities together in re-imagining what our students and teachers are capable of doing. Run, don’t walk, to bring this film to your school. After seeing this film, you’ll never look at school the same way again.’
Phase 3 students will be having an opportunity to watch this film within the school day.
Outside the Box is an exciting programme of learning and fun (Taking place inside The Red House and outside the school timetable). Courses are run by experts and enthusiasts from a wide range of areas. Take a look at our full programme and download a booking form if you re interested in any of theses courses… we look forward to seeing you Outside the Box!
Here are just a few of the flyers, to whet your appetite…..
Following last year’s sell-out performance at The Red House, we are delighted to share that Project Zulu will be returning on June 8th. This will be Project Zulu’s first ever community choir, with 4 children from each of their 6 partnership schools joining to create a choir of 24. All funds raised from this tour will be split equally between each of the schools to help aid further development of educational facilities. You can see a full list of our schools and what they’ll be raising funds for visiting www.projectzulu.org.
As a supporter of this project, the evening performance at PSCA’s ‘Red House’ is sure to once again take the proverbial roof off. The Project Zulu Choir will be performing alongside other groups from our school community, including Phase Three Students’ Making Projects.
Tickets are on sale now and are likely to move quickly. Whether you missed it last time or are itching to share this with others, you can purchase yours via the front desk at PSCA, in person, or make a booking over the phone.
The Red House And Third Space Present New York “Anti Folk” Hero Thomas Truax and text as below:
Thomas Truax first came to prominence as a solo performer in the 1990s in New York as one of a group of musicians and songwriters who made up the anti-folk movement based around the Sidewalk Cafe on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. These musicians included Beck, Lach and Jeffrey Lewis. Truax invents, builds and plays his own fantastical instruments as though plucked straight from the mind of Tim Burton. Come and hear the voice of a true original performer and creative “maker” and listen to the far out sounds of bizarre instruments such as The Hornicator / Cadillac Beatspinner Wheel / Stringaling / The Backbeater / Mother Superior / Sister Spinster. Notice: No 3D Printing was used in the making of this production, just the skill and ingenuity of one person and the things he could lay his hands on!
PSCA is pleased to be working in association with Third Space Group, a new business launching in Plymouth soon geared around an eclectic programme of events in workplace settings. Thomas Truax will be spending time with students during the day and all profits from ticket sales of the evening show will be donated to the school.
On Friday 2nd of October Project Zulu will be bringing another amazingly talented, all singing all dancing choir of children from the Madadeni township to the UK in September/ October 2015 to complete a 3 week tour. During this time all funds raised will go towards the development of educational and community facilities within the township. This will firstly be in the form of new classrooms for Sithobelumthetho Primary school followed by the development of sports facilities at the school.
Plymouth Art Weekender and The Big Water Colour:
Celebrating Plymouth as a hub of creativity is the Plymouth Art Weekender
Taking place on the 25, 26 and 27 September – it will host a variety of exhibitions and public art events taking place around the city, from street parties, skateboarding and rock drummers to alternative beauty pageants, artist talks and exhibitions.
Our challenge is to create a 10 x 5 meter collaborative painting. We have joined with Plymouth College of Art and Plymouth Watercolour Society for The Big Watercolour project. Exploring the medium of watercolour and inviting responses from the city with the theme of Plymouth, it culminates in a multi-generational event open to the public on Saturday 26 September 2015, 10am-4pm. We would love you to come and join us for all or part of the day – this is open to anyone and is free.
