As part of our programme of activities CVIVArts Theatre offered two free online workshops to the public:
On Thursday the 18th February at 7pm, Freelance Director and CVIVArts AD Hannah Stacey led a successful workshop on Zoom Theatre practice, resulting in some great learning taking place on devising and delivering engaging digital theatre for audiences at home.
"Enjoyed the devising/objectives - helped me see zoom less of a hindrance and more as an opportunity" Participant
"Excellent workshop I must say . Thoroughly enjoyed the basics and possibilities of experimenting with zoom as a medium of theatre. Would love to know more on your project, 'What are you hungry for?"
"Thank you so much to @CvivArts for the webinar on making online theatre via zoom, it was very fun and interesting especially in learning how to use many zoom methods to enhance performance"
On Tuesday the 23rd of March, CVIVArts Producer & Director Carrieanne Vivianette led a successful workshop on Mental Health & the Arts, with guest speakers: Geraldine Montgomerie from LAHWN/Love Arts & Miranda Arieh, award winning Mental Health specialist, resulting in artist exploration of positive practice in and outside of art practice
"Just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful and important workshop last night"
"thanks for such an inspiring workshop yesterday. The speakers were super motivating and engaging, I literally felt myself feeling more determined and motivated as I was listening. The activity was so useful, I found myself dissecting all the other wellbeing interests I had after the workshop finished which says a lot"
"Fab workshop this evening @CviVarts @LeedsAHWN on #MentalHealth & the #arts. Great to connect with other practitioners to explore"
