The Neighbourhood Company recently completed a series of eight workshops. The workshops were designed to assist people to engage, experience and participate in the arts.
The content of the workshops stimulated an existing interest or an emerging interest in the theatre. Participants were supported in engaging age-appropriate games and exercises specifically designed to inspire confidence and creativity. These bespoke workshops examined the letter writing of Lady Gregory and the works of the dramatist, Hugh Leonard.
The participants, in collaboration with the dlr Mill Theatre and facilitators, Clare Maguire & Seamus Quinn, are applying for a bursary to support a further series of workshops.
