In It Together is a free, digital creative support scheme launching in September, for young people aged 14-16 years old living in Hackney. The scheme will consist of ten workshops, held once a week via Skype, and will focus on two main elements : creativity & mental health and wellbeing.
The creative workshops will explore a range of art forms, including writing, spoken word, music, text and character work, improvisation and games, movement, devising and physical theatre. The wellbeing workshops will help young people to assess their own wellbeing, as well as provide resources and contacts to help them navigate their way through the Covid-19 crisis and its aftermath.
The primary aim for In It Together is to bring people together, helping young people get connected and stay creative during what are some very tricky times.
Dates: 16th September — 25th November (no session during the October half term break)
Times : Every Wednesday, via Skype, from 4pm-5pm.
