High Quality workshops for Mid Powys

I'm wondering if I might get some suggestions on bringing in some high quality or unusual workshop ideas or practitioners to come in and work with us at Mid Powys Youth Theatre. Doesn't need to be for actors, but could be something in Tech/SM or Set Design, Puppetry, Pyro, any unusual disciplines that you may know or have some experience of.
Thanks for any thoughts.

Flameholder - High Frequency People coming soon

My second Flameholder single is complete - High Frequency People

With what I'm making I'm trying to make more than music, I'm trying to make experiences. I'm trying to increase people's consciousness with sound. Everything is geared towards social progress. Anything less than that is boring to me. Here's a reminder of my first track Neverdie and thank you deeply to everyone who supports and pays me attention. I'll announce the date of the new single when I know. Peace and ENERGY and…

Feel Good Friday

A lot can happen in one week

Let alone one month, or one year.

Time cannot be reversed. It only goes forward. Minute by minute, day by day.

The reason I mention this is because you may think you can't achieve much in such a small amount of time. I disagree!

You can change the world in a week with passion, desire and determination.

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try. –Beverly… Continue
