Community & education
Education and community work has always been a strong strand of SBDC and Sujata Banerjee's work. Soon after coming to the UK in the early 1980s, Sujata started working for the Commonwealth Institute (now the Commonwealth Education Trust) as an outreach artist travelling all over the country developing awareness of South Asian arts, Indian dance and storytelling.
Sujata has also worked for many years in collaboration with Music for Change and other community organisations on a wide range of projects in schools, libraries, museums and other community settings such as the Dragon Cafe.
This strand of the company's work, reflects our knowledge and experience of the many benefits that participation in dance can achieve, not just in terms of physical and mental health and well-being, but socially and culturally by bringing people together and raising awareness and understanding.
Workshops and projects can be designed to work with a range of school curriculum topics or to fit with your organisation's specific project requirements.
