The Other Side of the Wall: Theatre and Drama in Criminal Justice Settings
18th-20th March 2015, St Columba’s-by-the-Castle, Edinburgh
Geese Theatre Company has been at the forefront of arts based practice with people in the criminal justice system for the past twenty eight years. Following great success with training courses at its headquarters in Birmingham, we are now bringing a three-day training course to Scotland. The course is open to anyone who is interested in, or has experience of working with offenders and young people at risk of offending. The course is also recommended for students of Applied Theatre, Prison Theatre and associated studies.
Participants will be invited to experience and practice first-hand, a range of drama-based techniques for use in group work, with a focus on exploring some of the key principles behind Geese’s work with offenders. The sessions will be led by Geese’s Deputy Artistic Director, a leading practitioner in the field with over 21 years’ experience.
