Embrace the Journey: Wellbeing through stories (online)
Creativity and self-expression through making and sharing stories are basic human needs. These acts have a healing power, a function in our lives that helps us create meaning and process the world around us.
Inspired by the artwork on display across Museums Worcestershire’s three museums (Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum, The Commandery, and the County Museum at Hartlebury Castle), these creative wellbeing sessions will enable participants to connect through the use of stories – both personal and imaginary. Though these sessions will begin as guided discussions, participants will do more than “just talk”: sessions will develop organically and there may be creative activities such as drawing or gentle movement exercises – designed to be fun and therapeutic.
These online sessions will be led by experienced dramatherapist, Gergo Danka. Joining details will be shared with participants two days before the event, by email.
Online sessions run 10-10:30am on Thurs 14, Thurs 21 and Thurs 28 January.
There are in-person versions of these sessions (at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum) running on Tues 12 and Tues 26 January.
Sessions are free but booking is required to secure your space. Telephone 01905 25371 to book. Maximum of 6 participants per session.
