Everyday Miracles

Welcome to Everyday Miracles, a 6-week course of online content focussing on theatre-making and general wellbeing. Each week new videos and home tasks will be released to help you develop new skills and learn from GSC professionals.

Premiering: Monday 1 June - Friday 10 July.

Content will be premiered at 4pm throughout the week, with all content remaining on our website, so you can access it at your own pace. All content is available in multimedia format (video, audio and text).

Anyone choosing to engage with any of the activities needs to take responsibility for their own wellbeing when working with the materials. Please look after your own welfare and the welfare of any children in your care when following the videos. If you require more intensive support please contact us and we can post you to relevant services.
