  Previous Engagements

Terms 3 & 4 2016*

Artist in Residence , Dixons Creek Primary School

'FENCED'  a puppet making and story telling project exploring the complexities and comfort zones that divide people.

sponsored by Creative Victoria, Artists in Schools program.

What an amazing night this little school community had on Friday December 9, 2016. Five little puppet theatres 'popped up' around the school to delight and entertain an audience of around 200 people. Hundreds of hours of work had gone into making puppets, writing scripts, building props and rehearsing for the plays. Our local artist, Angie Macmillan was so inspiring. Angie worked with a band of parents who assisted right throughout the process. We were all amazed to see our little Foundation students perform five theatres throughout the night. Thank you also to Richelle Hoogenraad for bringing the 'Artists in Schools' program to us. Well done and thank you to our most appreciative audience on the night.

APRIL 2015- 
Puppets as a Therapeutic Tool for Health and Well being.
Workshop presentation for Student welfare Co Ordinators hosted by Yarra Ranges Council School Focus Youth Service.
Teachers engaged in hands on activities to experience and explore both verbal and non verbal  expression and communication through puppets, giving them opportunity to explore and discuss how they might use puppets as a therapeutic intervention with students.    

Comments:   
One teacher said that she would soon be working with a mute student and was unsure about where to start. She expressed that the session has giving her some valuable and practical ideas for her to work with this student
I heard two teachers discussing how they would like to bring a soft and cuddly animal puppet into the class room  to assist anxious students.       
                                                                      
Another expressed that it was quite liberating having the opportunity to communicate through this both challenging and fun art  form and that he would definitely find a way to bring it into the class room.
