E5 is more than a nice fringe

  1. 1. Project: E5E5 is more than a nice fringeE5 is a meeting place for everyone who likes to make culture & art education a part of thecurriculum and it’s absolutely more than a nice fringe. It offers much more than teachingstudents how to spend their free time in a proper and sophisticated way. Culture is alwaysthere en belongs to everyone. It’s a part of everyday life and everyday attitude. E5 is a mainstreet going through all educations and trainings and makes it possible to make a long orshort trip; you can join the traffic and leave whenever you like.E5 helps teachers and students in five different ways, in accordance with five differentdirections: theatre, music, dance, language [debating & poetry] and visual arts education,e.g. film and exhibitions. Most of the activities take place in our professionally equippedtheatre, The King’s Room in building E. But we can also use ordinary classrooms or outsideplaces and even in the community, behind the walls of our college.E5 works together with the trainee posts of our theatre school. The second-year studentshave to do all kinds of jobs and practical trainings for three days a week. For E5 they makeall kinds of performances, which we can put on our own stage for the other students of ourcollege.Every year about 2.500 students visit our theatre; sometimes it is the first time in their livethey visit a performance. The students from the theatre school also give workshops aboutpresenting yourself, debating and improvising; sometimes they work on themes like how toreact to aggressive people or rude customers.Next week we have a performance about being diabetic. It’s coproduction withwww.sugarfriends.nl ; they asked us to make a performance to make students more awareabout what it means being diabetic for a young student. After the performance we will talktogether about the problems and possibilities. One of the students of our colleges will tellabout her every day experiences.We are also working on performances about sexuality and homosexuality in order to give thevisitors an artistic performance and an insight in another world and to create an opportunityto talk about issues that are controversial and sometimes even a taboo.E5 does not only offer opportunities to be a cultural consumer, but it also gives everybody apossibility to develop their own talent. Students who like to work in a creative way, like to beon stage, like to dance, sing or play will have the chance to develop themselves as a part oftheir own curriculum. E5 removes the fencings between different educations.
