SCT has formed a number of partnerships with major organisations through which it is able to pursue special initiatives which it could not undertake alone.
It has, for example, worked with the Southbank Centre on the production of Speaking Out, a download designed to provide an introduction to the basic skills required for speaking in public, and with Central St Martins College of Art & Design, part of the University of the Arts London, on the design of prototype Speakers’ Corners.
Speaking in Public
Everyone has good ideas and strong opinions. But few have the confidence or experience to communicate them to others. Not feeling able to express oneself freely is one of life’s most debilitating frustrations and ideas unexpressed are lost to us all.
SCT has jointly commissioned with the Southbank Centre a downloadable film Speaking Out! which provides a fifteen-minute introduction to the basic skills required to speak confidently and effectively in public. Featuring the experiences and advice of a range of performers, campaigners, artists, and politicians, it encourages every one of us to take the next opportunity to have our say!
