We are Chol, a theatre and arts company who specialise in live story making and drama workshops in everyday locations. We deliver high quality drama based workshops that have been specially designed and developed with professionals from educational and art organisations.
Each of our programmes and workshops embed the 7 Quality Principles to support schools to achieve their Artsmark Award. Our workshop style uses collaborative and co-creating methodologies as we work as ‘equal players’ to allow participants to engage with the curriculum, create artwork and develop confidence.
*Covid 19 Update:
Chol are still open for business and we are still able to provide services during this time. We are working within Covid19 guidelines set out by Public Health England and our Funders and so the majority of our work has temporarily moved to online platforms.
