April – July 2020 Puppet Theatre at Home

Thanks to the funding from Hackney Grants we were able to continue our work during the Coronavirus pandemic, by running online sessions with selected participants between the age of 8 and 9 years old in collaboration with Hackney Ark.

We sent our participants a kit with a ‘build your own’ theatre and other art resources to get them started on their creative journey. We then had a series of weekly Zoom tutorials with an art, drama and music facilitator to support the participants learning.

Watch the video below to see one of the participants beautiful creations.

It has been fun and positive for him. Especially in the education/social vacuum that has is lockdown
