 STEP Beyond main image

Between November 2012 – February 2013, STEP delivered its ninth annual Festival for young people in Southwark. The STEP Beyond theme was chosen to profile how young people in Southwark could discover how they could further their talents, skills and personal development through creative expression, enabling them to reach their full potential. The Festival activities offered young people the chance to be bold and to empower them in how they pursue their aims for the future.

In 2012, STEP asked Partners to apply with a Festival project that could be evaluated and presented at a conference celebrating and critiquing the importance of drama in education. The Festival took place over a period of three months, enabling Partners to deliver work over a longer, more sustained period of time in the lead-up to the STEP Conference, 'Who Needs Drama?' on 1 February 2013.
