Free Workshops in Drama, Art & Photography

Free Workshops in Drama, Art & Photography

Woodthorpe Development Trust, the community organisation behind services such as Talent Match and Health Works, have announced their new ‘This Ability’ workshops.

These are free workshops in drama, art and photography, and are aimed at people who have a learning disability, a mental health condition, complex needs or who experience communication barriers.

The workshops aim to raise awareness that language is more than just the spoken word, and asks whether we really take the time to listen, observe and give people the scope to express themselves using different forma of communication.

The workshop organisers want people to have the freedom to use art, photography & drama to produce an exhibition and a short performance. Their aim is to come together to educate others that there are multiple forms of communication and that everybody should recognise these methods.

Dates for the workshops have not been announced yet, but if you are interested in taking part and would like more information then please contact Vicki Ambler on 0114 2654165 or email Vicki@woodthorpedt.co.uk .

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
