Partnership with Holdsworth Community

Since 2018, STC has partnered with Holdsworth Community to deliver drama workshops to children, young people and adults living with an intellectual disability in Sydney.

The workshops focus on storytelling, creative communication and collaboration. Led by experienced Teaching Artists, drama is utilised to help participants improve their social skills, team work and verbal and non-verbal expression of ideas.

Feedback from participants and their families during the pilot phase of the program has been excellent. Holdsworth Community is supported by The James N Kirby Foundation to deliver this program.

"Patrick loves the drama program. We are so delighted that Patrick has had the opportunity to take part in this program with the support of Holdsworth and Sydney Theatre Company. It is fabulous to see his confidence and communication skills grow as he works with the group."
