Every year Urban Seed Education speaks to thousands of school students, community groups and workplaces, leading interactive Walks around the city and running creative Workshops that address creative and empathic responses to issues such as homelessness, addiction and community involvement. You can book individual sessions for your group or class, and we are also able to combine several sessions over one or more days as part of a retreat day or city experience programme.
“This was one of the most engaging and interesting sessions I have ever engaged with in my time as an educator.”
“Demystified and clarified the plight of the homeless. Encouraged compassion. Gave some interesting insight in how to engage with and help the homeless. Provoked a little thought about income inequality and justice.”
“I have been on this session a number of times and found it very worthwhile for the year 9s. It is relevant in terms of their developing interest in a world outside of their own and starting them to think about what is homelessness and how does it look.”
“All the content was relevant and interesting and definably challenged many students to step out of their comfort zone. Particularly when they had to share their experiences with other students that they don't normally associate with.”
Urban Seed Education offers an insight into homelessness, marginalisation and street culture that is engaging and experiential. We share anecdotes and stories that bring urban issues alive for students and group participants. Our educational walks and workshops help break down stereotypes, introduce participants to wider cultural issues and promote consideration of the risks associated with alcohol and drug abuse.
