The Diverse project was an initiative funded by Derbyshire County Council and The Broadway Media Centre, Nottingham and ran by Greenshoots. The project started with a series of workshops where young people from a wide and Diverse range of cultural backgrounds took part in sessions exploring their use of language. These sessions then informed performance pieces in Rap, Song and Dance, Animation and Fashion written and performed by the young people themselves mentored by industry professionals and teachers and assisted by undergraduates and volunteers. The work enabled the young people to explore their own and others' cultural heritage through the Arts and was a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience for all involved. Two evening performances took place at the end of the project and attracted an audience of 500 parents, family, friends, governors, teachers and council and Broadway dignitaries.
