Are you an adult living with a disability who is interested in acting, art, dance, or self-expression?

You are invited to a free one-day performance workshop with writer and solo performer, Abby Paige, during her artist residency at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Our day together will include a tour of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s permanent collection exhibitions, followed by fun acting, movement, and improvisation exercises designed to help us create gestures, images, and stories to be shared. We will explore how our bodies inhabit and move through space and what it means to see and be seen. Regardless of your level of ability or experience, you are invited to participate in this day of collaboration, creativity, and fun. This will be led by artist-in-residence Abby Paige, writer and theatre creator; you can read about her work at abbypaige.com. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, please contact Abby Paige directly at emailabbypaige@gmail.com, or by calling 292-5307. Please note that registration is not available through the Gallery for this workshop.

The workshop will take place in the RBC Learning Center, located on the lower level of the Gallery’s new pavilion, near the ramped entrance to Café Beaverbrook by Chess Piece Patisserie. Support workers and caregivers are also welcomed to attend. The workshop will be held in English, but French and Spanish speakers can also be accommodated. There is no charge to participate, but lunch is not provided
