FOR MORE ON COLLINGWOOD LEARNING

About Collingwood Learning

The Smashed Project is the flagship programme of the award-winning Collingwood Learning, founded by Chris Simes and Lindsay Richards in 2009. Collingwood are passionate advocates of creativity in education and training. They make storytelling through theatre and video central to all their work in the UK and around the world. Through our creative network of partners we can design and implement unique education programmes on a global scale.

Sponsoring the Smashed Project

If you’re looking to sponsor The Smashed Project in your part of the world, we will build an in-country partnership between you, delivery partners, key educational stakeholders and government. With over twenty three successful national projects developed to date, we have perfected the ability to bring people together and give them the tools to create a powerful and sustainable programme.

Media Enquiries

Help us tell the Smashed story. Smashed is a ground breaking theatre-in-education project, performed in multiple languages and styles to young people from countries as diverse as Mozambique, Brazil, Italy, Indonesia, the US and China. We’ve overcome cultural, linguistic, and political barriers to create a universally accepted educational approach that is rapidly gaining recognition.

New Projects

We’re driven by a belief in using creativity to help young people learn about many social issues. We’re looking for partners to go on new creative, educational journeys with us. What are the topics that reflect your social responsibility? We can tell your story to the world.
