Workshop Facilitator Abbie was invited to be a guest speaker at Shakespearia, an international student drama festival based in Voronezh, Russia this week.
Over the last three days she's led team building and communication workshops for young people in the city, as well as workshops for English language teachers from across Russia. Abbie told us: "The apprehensive teachers quickly warmed to the 'Building a Shed' exercise and within minutes, the room was filled with laughter and inhibitions were pushed firmly to one side! It was lovely to speak to some of the teachers at the end of the workshops, they said they were looking forward to trying some of the exercises we had done with their students."
"The festival has been a lot of fun, with performances in both English and Russian, and a mixture of pieces from Shakespearean inspired performances to retellings of The Lion King! It's been great to be a part of such an ambitious and successful project which I hope will continue for years to come!"
