Create and Connect - Ages 12-16
Please note that this program is offered at no cost to participants to promote inclusion for families and young people who may not be able to access arts and leadership programming otherwise.
Delivered in partnership with DAREarts, our new Create and Connect program invites participants ages 12-16 from the GTA, the City of Stratford and Perth County to explore the world of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night together as their own online theatre company, discovering many elements of theatre through hands-on arts experiences guided by professional teaching artists from both DAREarts and the Stratford Festival.
Topics explored will include: connecting Shakespeare to our lives today, the many layers of theatre that go beyond acting on stage (such as set design, costuming, writing, etc.) and how we can build connections to ourselves and each other along the way.
Monday to Friday, July 19-30, 2021 (10:30 a.m.- noon)
