The outreach workshops - our creative performing arts sessions for disabled people, siblings parents / carers. The workshops are planned to suit the needs for the participants whether it is a need to help develop confidence and self-esteem, to improve communication with others or to provide caring. A safe environment to let go and have fun through expressive arts. After gaining information about the group I will be able to design a workshop that will be fun, interactive and a positive sharing experience for all involved.
The venue must be large enough for dance and movement to take place i.e large class room, gym, halls etc. Chairs should be made available and any tables must be cleared to the side for health and safety reasons.
