Surgery Session

Thursday 30th June, 5-8pm at London Bubble

The idea behind this workshop is that it should feel like an informal twilight which brings practitioners together to talk about any issues or successes they are having at the moment. These more informal, “surgery” events will take place once a term and be followed by a more focused, themed event (the forthcoming one will take place in July, be delivered by Oval House and Corali Dance Company and focus on inclusive practice).

If you would like to attend the session on 30th June, please get in touch. Feel free to pass this invitation on to your pools of practitioners. The session is free to attend for all practitioners working for STEP companies.

When: Thursday 30th June, 5-8pm

Where: London Bubble (map attached)

What: an event for people who work creatively with children and young people for STEP companies - involving debate, practice, reflection and refreshment
