Thanks to funding from Arts Council England and Helix Arts, and as part of the Common Connections programme, the Heritologists are hosting two in-person workshops at The Linskill Centre, North Shields.
The two workshops are specifically for the 55+ age group living or working in North Tyneside.
There will be no Zoom calls to navigate your way through – these are two sessions face-to-face (following the current safety guidelines of course).
We’ve called them ‘Creative Writing Workshops’, which might sound a bit scary, and not something for you – so just to dispel any fears, we won’t be writing short stories or a novel – this is about our experiences during lockdown.
Missed meeting people? Like telling stories? Enjoy words and writing?
These two workshops are a great chance to do all three in a covid secure venue with free coffee and cake thrown in.
In an informal, friendly environment we’ll talk about the impact that 2020 has had on our lives – a roller coaster of a year that none of us saw coming.
The conversations will be led by author Sue Miller from Whitley Bay who has lots of experience of running these kinds of events in the community.
She says ‘Everyone’s journey will be different, we’ll see what emotions we share and what we don’t.’
Then with the help of a local graphic designer we’ll produce a quality poster which you will receive a few weeks after the sessions as a personal souvenir.
Because, as a famous doctor once said: ‘We’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one eh?’
Places are limited so book yours now while there’s availability.
17th May and 24th May – starting at 10:30am and finishing no later than 12:30
