Research Collaborations

Using drama and storytelling to provide insight into lived experiences.

Peekaplayers were delighted to partner with Southwark Culture Health and Wellbeing Project (SCHWeP) on their Covid 19 project. We have long had a keen interest in making work that is functional, relevant and strengthens our understanding of communities.

The project aimed to address the impact of covid across Southwark. We used creative activities, improvisation and role play to address the impact of school closures, vaccine inequality, social distancing, mask wearing and government messaging.

Our project, along with other similar projects were documented and a report created to serve as a basis for improving access to services. Southwark Council will use the information to further increase their offer to the most disadvantaged wards.
