Other Ways of Telling is a theatre group for adults who want to develop their artistic skills and create a piece of street theatre with a team of professional artists.
Since 2012 Collective Encounters has worked with St. Helens Arts Service and a variety of other partners to deliver participatory workshops to people accessing or at risk of accessing adult health and social care services.
This year, the Other Ways of Telling group will shift away from the adult health and social care agenda and will focus on developing specific performance skills of participants, such as acting, physical theatre and voice. Weekly workshops will lead to a performance that will take place in April looking at voter turnout and engagement prior to the General Election 2015.
Other Ways of Telling is a Collective Encounters project supported by Heart of Glass, St.Helens Council and Arts Council England.
Sessions take place every Wednesday from 5pm – 7pm, 18th & 25th February and 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th March at St.Helens Central Library, Victoria Square, St.Helens, WA10 1DY
