Creative project – London
21 October @ 11:30 am – 22 October @ 6:00 pm
Join this intensive creative session with the Body and Movement team in London on the 21st and 22nd of October (11.30am-6pm each day)
Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
This Creative project will explore childhood, memory, dreams. Through movement tasks, writing prompts, audio generation, and play, we will tap back into our inner child while also honouring who we are as adults today. This creative project will work towards embracing our whole selves, our past, our present, and imagining our future.
Participants will dance with the Micro Rainbow creative team, write their own poems, fragments, and notes, and have the opportunity to record some of their writing for the development of a soundscape. In a way, we will dance and write autobiographically.
Over these days we will be joined by a photographer to document our work. It will be photographed by Kate Green in ways that will protect identity if needed. You are welcome to take part in the creative project and opt out of being photographed. We will ask you to complete a consent form to tell us what you are comfortable with. As always we want to enjoy dancing, playing and making something beautiful together in a safe and creative environment.
We will use the written, audio and photographic content from the project to be shared in the following ways:
- We will share it with Micro Rainbow beneficiaries and staff.
- We will share it with our funders and invited guests (Micro Rainbow family and friends)
- It may be shared on the internet, including on the Micro Rainbows website.
- In social media posts.
- In Project Evaluations to share the outcomes from the project.
No dance or creative experience is required for the project. If you have any specific access needs, please make a member of the MR Team aware of this.
