The Community & Applied Drama laboratory (CADLab) at Newman University Birmingham tours ‘Rocket-Arts’ on the wards of Birmingham Children’s Hospital in collaboration with the James Brindley School. ‘RocketArts’ is an interactive bedside theatre project using participatory storytelling with objects (Playmobil toys) and digital technology. It aims to encourage children’s communication, creativity and engagement with literacy during their stay in hospital. If you see a blue space rocket landing on your ward, then, you will know what it is!
