Creative Workshops - Exploring Loss and Grief

20/08/2024 10:30 am - 12:30 pm | York Theatre Royal

We are working with Next Door But One theatre group to run a series of workshops where we will use creative writing, art, music and performance to explore feelings of grief and loss.

We welcome all loss experiences; from bereavements to changes in identity, the loss of a relationship, the loss of a job and everything in-between.

The workshops will take place in a relaxed, creative, safe space at York Theatre Royal.

You are welcome to come to one workshop or all the workshops. Each will have a different theme.
Refreshments provided.
