A4D Drama workshop at Arcola Theatre, Dalston, June - July 2017

15 May 2017

A4D Drama at Arcola Theatre

A4D welcomes you to a free eight-week series of drama workshops at the wonderful Arcola Theatre. These workshops are for people affected by early stage dementia and their companions.

When: Tuesday mornings, 11 am - midday

6, 13, 20, 27 June

4, 11, 18, 25 July

Where: Arcola Theatre, 24 Ashwin Street, London E8 3DL.

Working with director Ross Crosby, these 8 weeks of workshops will use theatre, reminiscence and storytelling techniques to explore the mind, mental health and well-being. The project will work towards creating audio content to be included in Arcola Theatre's upcoming outdoor promenade community production TALK, which draws together groups from across the community to discuss and explore mental health and well-being in the community.

Please contact Ella on 020 7239 4954 or to register yourself, a friend or family member for what promises to be an exceptional series of workshops.
