Elevate Workshops

Diagram of a Julie Story


19th October, 10am to 1pm, acta Community Theatre

acta Community Theatre is proud to present the second session of the Elevate programme – Julie Story and other devising techniques

Elevate is a scheme run by acta and funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation and WECA. Over the course of nine months, we will train a core group of practitioners to make high-quality and impactful community-based theatre and arts initiatives. Some of the sessions will be open for all to book on to – we advise you follow us to get notified of future sessions too.

what will I do in this workshop?

• We’ll introduce you to the Julie Story Method of devising theatre
• You’ll learn how and when to implement this and other methods
• You’ll understand the benefits of this work for participants
• Explore different ways of doing this work
• You’ll have a chance to put these techniques into practice

This seminar will benefit anybody who works to build stories within groups – not just for theatre practitioners. Writers and other story tellers may also find this helpful.

Tickets to this workshop start at £10, please book your place on Eventbrite. (Opens in new tab)
