Description

Part of the Fringe Central Events Programme for Fringe participants. Delivered by Lauren Oakes, this workshop will highlight experiences from running Perth Autism Youth Theatre – Scotland’s first, and only, youth theatre for young people on the autism spectrum. Focusing on the benefits of using drama, the workshop will offer practical and effective activities to use when working with people with autism. Lauren will offer a first-hand account of supporting the introduction of relaxed performance to Perth Theatre.
