Wellbeing Workshop Series: Change Through Art

Spark and Co. are excited to partner with Writerz n Scribez. Join us for this workshop series and tap into the power of poetry to explore your wellbeing. 

Writerz And Scribez is a not for profit creative arts company built on the foundation that art changes and heightens life. They firmly believe that through the use of art, they can change lives. 

Join expert facilitator, Desree, who has been running workshops over the last three years, on a journey of sessions using poetry to explore: your name, your shame, family and relationships and the importance of telling your story. 

You are welcome to attend any or all of the workshops. Please make sure you sign up as spaces are limited! The workshops are hosted on the second Wednesday of each month from March - June. 

 

Belonging

In this workshop we will look at “What's In A Name”. 

By analysing our own names and what they mean in regards to our identity, we will be able to see how it allows us to move through the world.

Wednesday 10th March, 7.30pm. Sign up here. 

 

Shame

Looking at Olivia Gatewoods 'Ode to Bitchface' poem, in this workshop we are going to explore a part of ourselves that society or someone has told us we should be ashamed of, and flip it on its head

Wednesday 14th April, 7.30pm. Sign up here. 

 

Family and Relationships

Focusing on the meaningful relationships in our lives, we are going to look at what we can compare them to! 

Much as Martin Espada likens his father to a guide, we are going to write an extended metaphor poem about one of our meaningful relationships.

Wednesday 12th May, 7.30pm. Sign up here. 

 

The importance of telling your story

We all have a story to tell, it's just a matter of how we tell it! 

Using literary techniques and the power of listening, we are going to explore all the little things that make a good story, great.  

Wednesday 2nd June, 7.30pm. Sign up here.
