LEADER Finnish Trip - November 2019
The Finnish Drama Community in Yvelieska have welcomed Mullingar Charity Variety Group and Pic Drama Group Clara who will take part in a transnational theatre training programme in Finland over the coming days.
The project aims to promote shared learning among local drama groups in Offaly, Westmeath and Finland. Local Drama groups from Clara and Mullingar have travelled to Finland to stage two productions at a Finnish local drama festival. Likewise, a Finnish drama group will visit Westmeath and Offaly and stage a production at a weekend drama festival in Spring 2020. Training workshops will form an important part of the drama festivals in each country and will provide participants in the project with an opportunity to share ideas/approaches that they can bring back to their respective groups.
This project has been made possible with support from Offaly Local Development Company and Westmeath Community Development. Funded by Offaly and Westmeath Local Community Development Committees, the Department of Rural and Community Development, the EAFRD and the LEADER Programme 2014-2020.
