Tin Shed To Present Free Workshops Based On Intergenerational Storytelling
Newport based Tin Shed Theatre Co. are looking for participants for their next project. Looking to bring together teenagers and older people, they will be hosting a series of free workshops focused on intergenerational story telling.
“We all love listening to and telling stories, whether they’re classics, anecdotes, jokes or things that have happened to us,” says Justin Cliffe of Tin Shed, “They have the ability to unite us, no matter who we are, through common interests, passions and experience. When we tell, and listen to stories we share a perspective on humanity for a brief moment in time. This is what we really want to explore, and bring together people who exist within two fringes of society.”
Hosting free workshops; the company aim to bring together a group of young people aged between 11-16 and older people aged 50+ for two days of relaxed, fun and creative story telling workshops that will see participants sharing, writing and concocting their own stories together, with the hopes of sharing them with the public.
