Free Theatre Workshops with Aphasia Theatre

Aphasia Theatre

Fingal County Council is delighted to support this arts and health initiative which promotes positive living through engagement with theatre, the workshops are suitable for adults or senior citizens or those affected with Aphasia  who are interested in exploring new ways to communicate and participate.

Aphasia is the term used to describe a condition which limits the individual’s ability to verbally communicate; it can be associated with brain injury, stroke and dementia.

Communication is more than just verbal,we can communicate through, gesture, sound and movement. Artist Grainne Hallahan continues to develop a very interesting project called Irish Aphasia Theatre where she delivers a selection of theatre workshops designed but not limited to the characteristics of the condition.

Following a very successful pilot project with participants affected with Aphasia, Fingal County Council is supporting the initiative into 2019 and are offering free Aphasia Theatre workshops with Grainne and Collaborators free to anyone who is interested with workshops commencing Friday 4th of October – December 11th 2019 - 11am – 1pm  at Draiocht, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15  if you have a family member,or are a carer to people with characteristics of this condition you are very welcome to come along and experience for yourself the joy of communicating  and expressing yourself through theatre
