The Passenger Project

October-December 2014

The Passenger from Box Clever on Vimeo.


New road safety project developed in collaboration with young people and toured to secondary schools throughout Sussex

Box Clever will be working with young people to develop a new project that will highlight the positive role to be played by passengers in helping to make car journeys safer.

Using an original witness statement as the starting point, Box Clever will write a number of short 20-minute dramatic scenes with input from young people. The new drama will be combined with an interactive workshop and toured to 35 secondary schools in Sussex.  Students will watch the performance and, during the workshop and explore how the journey could be made safer and how they, as passengers, would be able to have a positive influence on the driver.

Number of performances or workshop opportunities: 35
