Accessibility details Main group activity currently takes place via Zoom. We are able to provide support to help participants get set up with Zoom and join us.

Women & Theatre’s Community Performance Club involves creative, uplifting activities for people over 50 & carers – currently taking place via Zoom. Group sessions encourage participants to be active, sociable, learn new skills & collaborate to develop creative work. The project aims to promote wellbeing, strengthen community connections & reduce isolation.

Participants of previous courses have fed back that they benefitted from doing something creative and fun, and spending time with others. They have reported increased confidence, participation, sense of purpose, emotional wellbeing and sense of community.

W&T courses are currently focusing on drama and theatre, with the next 10-week course exploring creative ways of developing drama over Zoom. W&T hope to resume face-to-face delivery later in the year.

This project is particularly targeting people living in Brandwood and surrounding areas, however whilst working on Zoom, we are happy to recruit from other parts of Birmingham.
