Theatre-maker and educator Anna Newell has designed workshops for people in a leadership role in Early Years education. Presented by Riverbank Arts Centre in association with Kildare County Childcare Committee, These interactive workshops aim to create a fun and collaborative environment to encourage creative problem solving.
MAKING LEMONADE: CREATIVE THINKING IN A TIME OF CRISIS
A two-hour facilitated workshop aiming to explore together how to find creative strategies to the current situation we find ourselves in. In this workshop Anna will set participants a range of fun thinking-outside-the-box mini-tasks with no pressure to deliver them but with the chance of opening up new possibilities, thoughts and discoveries by brainstorming together as we try and move forward into these uncharted waters. You’ll need no additional equipment except for something to write with, something to write on and an imagination that wants to play.
This workshop will be conducted online (on ZOOM platform) and will be 2 hours in duration. Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Wicklow-based Anna Newell has been making theatre adventures for people of all ages to watch and to take part in since 1989 – in theatres of all sizes, in a disused police station, in a shopping centre, on a barge, in a sonic lab, in a hydropool and in a secret apartment – in various cities in the UK and Ireland and also in the US, South Africa and Bosnia. She created the world’s first BabyDay, introduced theatre for children and young people with PMLD (Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties) into Ireland and helped start baby theatre in South Africa. Her work for Early Years audiences has been seen on six continents. Her shows are informed and inspired by her audience at every stage of their creation and have human connection at their very heart. https://www.annanewell.co.uk/
