Congratulations Alexandra!

Congratulations to our wonderful lighting tech and assistant designer Alexandra MacDonald, who has been selected from the many, many Australian students who applied, to be included in Bell Shakespeare’s Work Experience program for 2019.

This is an amazing opportunity to work with one of Australia’s foremost theatre companies and she will be learning in a behind-the-scenes week focusing on their national touring production of Much Ado About Nothing.

Alex was only 1 of 14 students selected and we are all very proud of her and wish her well with this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Granslam

Everybody NOW! and Feros Care have joined forces to create a new poetry and film making project for people aged 70 years and over.

We’re looking for seniors with a declaration to make, a voice to be heard, an opinion to be penned. We’re hoping we could send you some information to share among your members, community & networks. Would there be an email address we could share this to?

Throughout a series of free workshops, selected participants will work alongside experienced poet and performer David Stavanger, to write and perform poetry that moves and inspires.

The poets will then create a performance of their newly crafted pieces with David and Everybody NOW! Director Ian Pidd and a short film with the support of talented team at Art-work Agency. The film will be premiered at a Feros Care bespoke event at the renowned Byron Writers Festival.

David Stavanger is an award winning and widely published poet and writer who has directed and featured in major festivals, often under the alias of Ghostboy, including Queensland Poetry Festival, Brisbane Writers Festival, and Sydney Writers Festival, among many. He is also the co-editor of the first ever Australian & New Zealand spoken word anthology Solid Air (UQP, forthcoming 2019).

No experience is necessary rather an enthusiasm and passion to give voice to your ideas and experiences.

Gran Slam is open to people from the Gold Coast, Northern Rivers and surrounding regions.

Workshops will be held on the Southern Gold Coast.

My colleague and project manager Kate Baggerson would be happy to provide you any more info over the phone. You can reach her on 0402 017 984
