 Following on from a successful 3 week pilot project in February we will once again be partnering with Stand Easy Productions to deliver drama workshops for Armed Forces Veterans.

 

Stand Easy Productions will be leading weekly workshops for veterans (and their families) at Macrobert Arts Centre, the workshops are primarily targeted at veterans who are Wounded, Injured or Sick but are open to any veteran or family member with an interest.

 

Workshops will run each Friday from 2.45pm-5.45pm. Workshops start on 7 Sep 2018 -1 Feb 2019 and are free to attend, there is also some money available to support veterans with their travel costs.

 

Veterans will work with a drama practitioner in a safe, supportive and creative environment to learn drama skills, with a focus on building confidence, having fun, talking and listening. Participants will also benefit from being with both Veterans and civilians, from talking with others who will listen and who will value their experience and respect their views and feelings.

 

The project will be supported by volunteers from Stirling University.

 

If you are interested in getting involved, either as a student volunteer or a participant please email creativelearning@macrobertartscentre.org or call 01786 466627.
