A central part of our project is to try and use the emancipatory potential of improvisation to improve the situations of children who are living in very difficult situations. As part of this commitment the Translating Improvisation team run on the Belfast marathon 2015 in order to fundraise for Women’s Aid who support women and children experiencing domestic violence.
Around 1000 women and 750 children seek refuge with Women’s Aid in Northern Ireland annually. In addition, 3500 women and 3700 children access the Floating Support service enabling access to support whilst remaining in their own homes and communities. This is vital work helping enhance the safety and well-being of women and children locally.
