Training for museum professionals
We run training workshops exploring our approach to creating drama and theatre in museum settings. Emily has recently been in Copenhagen working with museum professionals to explore storytelling narrative and performance. Trainees take part in a Peoplescape perfomances and experience our multisensory and interactive approach.
They explore how a ‘Less Verbal’ approach could be used in their own settings and have a chance to create their own short performances.
The work of Peoplescape has been presented at conferences nationally. Training has been delivered in Norwich, Newcastle, Manchester, Bristol, London, and N. Ireland.
As part of the IMTAL Europe event in Manchester this March, we performed our Arts Council funded puppetry performance Welcome to Cottonopolis, for museum, heritage and cultural sector professionals, interested in engaging visitors in a less verbal way.
The performance was followed by discussion and activities focusing on the question “How do we engage visitors with a diverse range of experiences and needs in a single experience?”
