Supporting yourself through change/transition

Speaker: Alan Lane, Artistic Director Slung Low

Slung Low make large scale people’s theatre work on stages, trains, castles, swimming pools, fishing boats and town centres. In 2019 Slung Low took over management of the oldest working men’s club in Britain, The Holbeck in South Leeds: they run this venue as a Pay What You Decide creative and community space. During the Covid crisis of 2020 the company was the ward lead for Holbeck and Beeston for social care referrals with responsibility for 7500 homes. They ran a non-means tested self-referral foodbank from March 2020 to June 2021: delivering 15,000 food parcels.

About the workshop

All dancers have gone through an enormous amount of change, as we are all still evolving into a new version of our world. This workshop brings us together to discuss and explore the ways we can support ourselves and each other to navigate this time.  Led by DCD Director of Coaching Isabel Mortimer, we will open up a fresh perspective and investigate how we can unlock all the possibilities for your present and your future, and turn change into an opportunity that you can steer in to the best path for you.

This workshop is in the past.
