This event has been postponed.
This opportunity is open to visually impaired young people who have been – or are currently involved in – Look’s online mentoring project.
Join Look and Daniel Morden, storyteller extraordinaire from The Devil’s Violin (https://www.thedevilsviolin.co.uk/about-us/company-bio/) in these free, fab Arts Council-funded workshops, which are designed to boost confidence and develop self-advocacy skills by developing articulacy and verbal fluency through storytelling. Our objective is for young VI people to feel confident in knowing how to effectively communicate their needs to the rest of the world.
Each workshop is 1.5 hours long, to include breaks. The two workshops will take place at 2pm on Tuesday 14th and Tuesday 21st April.
Participants must commit to attending all sessions, and will need parental consent to participate.
The workshops are supported by LOOK mentors – VI young adults volunteering as role models through the Look peer mentoring project.
There are limited places available – just 10 – so if you register and then can’t attend, please let us know so the place can be given to someone on the waiting list
Hosted on Zoom, once registered you will receive an email with the Zoom joining instructions.
Here’s a taste of what’s in store…
- Daniel tells the first half of a journey story to the group
- Task is to try to guess what happens in the rest of the story – all the clues are there for you to solve the puzzle!
- You will discuss how the story resolves itself, practicing storytelling skills e.g. articulacy and advocacy
You will need a way of making notes, if possible.
