Chol: 6-week Imaginary Communities (IC) Online CPD, Play & Wine Time

Wed 13 May 20 - Wed 17 Jun 20

Over 6 weeks, Chol Theatre will introduce ‘Imaginary Communities’ (IC), Chol’s signature story-making process used with children and young people in schools and community settings, through a series of online Zoom sessions.

IC uses drama, play, crafts and digital technologies to envision and build new worlds, characters and stories with children and young people.  The facilitators will share the IC practice and their ‘Equal Playmakers’ methodology through a mixture of presentations, discussions and creative live activities.

The Zoom sessions are relaxed and friendly, encouraging the group to get to know each other as we move through the weeks.  Everyone is encouraged to bring along a glass of wine or a cuppa and enjoy a new fun online approach to professional development!
