Glasgow Women's Library, Glasgow

Thursday, 18 Jul

Free - £21.35

This professional development training opportunity gives practitioners the chance to workshop with award winning Theatre Maker and Producer Mark Traynor who has been working in communities across Scotland for over 15 years.  Mark has been commissioned by bodies such as the NHS, the Scottish Prison Service, Social work and Third Sector organisations to provide programmes where members of the community can express themselves through drama workshops and performance. He has also produced three critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival shows following this methodology in recent years with his company Grassmarket Projects. 

During the workshop Mark will share some of his experiences of working in different community contexts, guide the group through creative exercises that have worked well in the past, and offer an insight into the learnings of his work.

This workshop will be suitable for both early career and experienced practitioners. Those who consider themselves artists but also support workers or people that work with some of the groups mentioned and want to find out more how drama could be used within their service. 

Please bring a pen and paper or something to take notes with to record your learning from the workshop and wear comfortable clothing.
