Women and Young People - new creative programs and partners

February 19, 2018

We are delighted to be working with a number of domestic violence support services to deliver creative arts workshops for women. We have also expanded our youth programs to partner with Evolve Housing for Youth in the Western Suburbs (Guildford) to deliver a series of workshops for young people aged 16-25, also offering the opportunity to link into our new interactive forum theatre work On The Edge in November! If you want to know more about the benefits and long-term impacts you and your community service can expect from partnering to run our workshops, please contact our CEO Judith, judith@milkcratetheatre.com  

 

Moving Out Moving On

Domestic Violence Service Management

 

Continuing over a period of 18 months these workshops will explore wellbeing domains through creative arts processes such as; what it means to be loved and connected, what makes a healthy life, what opportunities do we have for participation, learning and empowerment.

Women & Girls Emergency Centre

 

Next week we will begin a new 10 week workshop program exclusively for women and children accessing Women & Girls Emergency Centre services. Led by facilitating artist Cali Prince and supported by artist Christie Woodhouse, women and their children are invited to learn, laugh, create and collaborate through exploring the creative arts.   

 

Women's and Girls Emergency Centre (WAGEC) is a non-government, not-for-profit charitable organisation that proudly delivers a range of crisis and early intervention accommodation and support services to women, children and young people, and families who are experience or at risk of homelessness and/or domestic and family violence.

Evolve Housing for Youth

 

In May, workshops for young people accessing Evolve Housing for Youth's services will kick off at Guildford Youth Centre. Young people aged 16 - 25 with an experience of homelessness or being at risk of homelessness, are invited to join in and explore creative practice through movement, storytelling, and devising.

 

These young people will also have the opportunity to continue to develop their skills to performance by being involved in the development and presentation of our new interactive forum theatre work On The Edge, presented at Riverside Theatres in November. We are excited to be offering this opportunity with additional support from DOOLEYS Lidcombe Catholic Club and Sydney Motorway Corporation (WestConnex). These workshops and performance will be facilitated by artist Alice Williams.
