Production Related Workshops

We have a strong track record of working inclusively across a range of learning environments for children, young people and community groups.

Our bespoke programmes explore the themes of our productions and aim to inspire new perspectives, understanding and access to the world around us. We work across key stages, complimenting curriculum objectives as relevant to each production. Delivery can range in duration from half-day to 3-days and are designed for the bespoke needs within each group. Workshops are led by D/deaf and disabled artists, both from within Graeae’s core team and from our experienced pool of practitioners.
