IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING
THE WESTERN SYDNEY WORKSHOPS PROGRAM
In light of the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are recommencing this access program cautiously and in-line with government guidelines. The health and safety of our artists and participating students is always our first priority.
Planning is underway to start delivering in-school, face-to-face student workshops. We are also offering a selection of our workshops digitally. We encourage you to request you workshops for Term 3 & 4.
Belvoir offers a wide range of practical workshops for students that support work in the drama classroom.
If you are teaching in a high school in Western Sydney, then you may be eligible to apply for a free workshop at your school.
This free workshop program is offered to ensure all students across Sydney have access to Belvoir’s wide range of student workshops, led by industry professionals. Our workshops support work in the drama classroom and equip students with skills, strategies, practical activities and ideas.
All of our workshops are run by industry professionals who equip participants with skills, strategies, practical activities and ideas. These workshops are delivered at your school and are free of charge. Places are strictly limited.
Student workshops run for two hours during term time, Monday to Friday, dependent on the availability of our tutors.
We can run up to two workshops at your school. These may be two different workshop topics (see below options) or the same workshop topic with two different groups of students.
Ideally each workshop should have 20 to 30 participants. For smaller groups we recommend combining year groups or joining with a nearby school.
Workshops give senior students access to industry expertise which supports their HSC studies. Workshops are adjusted to give younger students a fun insight into the performing arts.
Workshops available include…
- Group Devising
- Performing Monologues
- Brecht and Political Theatre
