We begin with an object or artwork, then explore it in context through storytelling and drama. Based on Image Theatre concepts this is an accessiable and fun, creative way of introducing and interpreting exhibits and artefacts.
Participants create a narrative based on real life events-we look at all aspects of the event from as many perspectives as possible in order to break down barriers, pre- conceptions and prejudice. We can look at historical or contemporary events.
These workshops are available as 2 hour introductions or to form a full term of work.
These workshops are based on the work we do.
