CC Create a Puppet
Staff members in the Learning department have been working on a project with four European partner organisations. The project is called CC - Create a Puppet, Create Yourself and the following organisations are involved:
Teatr Grodzki, based in Bielsko-Biała, Poland (www.teatrgrodzki.pl) Youth Centre Babilonas, based in Vilnius, Lithuania (www.centrasbabilonas.lt) CSC DANILO DOLCI, based in Palermo, Italy (www.danilodolci.org) KNOW AND CAN ASSOCIATION, based in Sofia, Bulgaria (www.znamimoga.org)
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This project has been funded by Erasmus+ and aims to develop, to test and widely disseminate an innovative methodology based on creative approaches in adult education. The creative approach which is being focused on is puppetry and specifically the making of and manipulation of paper puppets.
Each partner organisation has undertaken training in how to create paper puppets and how to work with groups of adults to teach them the process. Staff members have also been trained in how to teach groups of adults manipulation of the puppets in order to rehearse and create a performance.
Each organisation has been running a series of pilot workshops to test the methodology. The Citizens Theatre has been working with:
Bridging the Gap Phoenix Futures 218 Women’s Service (part of Turning Point Scotland) Scottish Prison Service - HM Prison Low Moss CREW (part of the Southside Recovery Network)
The project will continue to run throughout the remainder of 2018 and into 2019. Check here for updates on progress on our Facebook page
