Penguins @ Birmingham Repertory Theatre
Feb 1 – Feb 10 all-day
Penguins @ Birmingham Repertory Theatre | England | United Kingdom

Roy and Silo are two male Chinstrap penguins. Just like the other penguin pairs at Central Park Zoo, they walk, play, swim and dance together. When the duo decide to try and hatch a rock in place of an egg, they find themselves on an adventure that could mean raising a chick for real!

Penguins is a unique and engaging show for children about friendship, fun, identity and the ever-changing meaning of family. This delightful new theatre and dance production is inspired by a true story reported in the New York Times that touched hearts worldwide.

The creative team includes award-winning children’s director Paul Bosco McEneaney and international choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra.

Amnesty International UK Present Inclusion For All with Shaun Dellenty @ Amnesty HQ
Feb 19 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Amnesty International UK Present Inclusion For All with Shaun Dellenty @ Amnesty HQ  | England | United Kingdom

Shaun Dellenty, an award-winning education trainer who works to positively prevent LGBT+ and identity-based prejudice in the UK education system, will present a talk on his multi-award winning programme, Inclusion for All, and its aims to foster positive LGBT+ inclusion in UK schools from nursery upwards.
Inclusion for All is a programme of training and teaching strategies developed by Shaun that aims to foster positive LGBT+ inclusion in schools, homes and communities, and thus significantly reduce incidents of prejudice-related bullying and language.
Rooted in schools and training, Inclusion for All empowers schools to develop cognitive empathy from the outset, to represent the diversity of family life in the 21st century without assumption or judgement and to take great joy in celebrating heritage and diversity in authentic individuals and whole school communities from the very first day in nursery. Shaun has also worked trained teachers on the Amnesty Teacher Programme for the past five years on positive LGBT+ inclusion and activism. Please join us for this inspiring and enlightening talk on education and LGBT+ inclusion. The Human Rights Action Centre will be open for an hour after the event for further discussion, networking and to meet with Shaun.
