THE SMASHED PROJECT – OUR MISSION
The Smashed Project is dedicated to breaking the culture of underage drinking around the world. Through creative education, we can equip young people with the information, awareness, and confidence to make responsible choices around alcohol.
Using Theatre-in-Education the Smashed Project engages young people in a unique way, allowing them to explore the causes and consequences of underage drinking in a safe and motivational learning environment. We use emotive theatre, interactive workshops, and interactive teaching resources all backed up with robust evaluation, with fantastic results.
