Speaking Role is a free theatre-based program for people with a disability who would like to enhance their communication and social skills for volunteering, employment and participation in their community.
The course will suit people who have some ability to communicate verbally but have difficulty in always being understood. It is led by two experienced theatre tutors, Gretel Burgess and Sammy Moynihan.
The program will use role-play, improvisation and Forum Theatre. Some sessions will be devoted directly to job-seeking skills, especially interviews.
Classes will run on Monday evenings, 6.30-8.30pm from Monday July 27 to Monday September 21. Tutors will interview participants about their goals for the course in the week commencing July 20, before classes commence in the following week. We will have in place COVID-Safe plans to minimise any risk to participants.
Speaking Role is funded by the National Disability Insurance Agency through their Information, Linkages and Capacity-Building program, with support from the Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres.
