ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Mobile phones and screens have increasingly become a big part of our everyday lives. Sometimes, they help us
connect and sometimes to disconnect – our bodies unconsciously form an interesting relationship with
these objects. This workshop explores that very relationship with the 'blue screen', through creativity, imagination and play.
This workshop is open to artists, facilitators, social workers, mental health professionals and everyone else who'd like to explore their relationship with their mobile phones through an engaging and creative interplay of arts, drama and therapy-based activities.
