From 17th August, City of Sanctuary will be partnering with Displace Yourself Theatre and Citizen Songwriters to offer a series of sessions for people to come together online.

Connect & Create is all about building connections with others and celebrating what is important about being part of a community of sanctuary.
The sessions include theatre, music and storytelling to explore the theme of connection:

• How can we can continue to feel close to each other?
• How can we harness the power of collective ideas?
• How in these difficult times can we find ways to celebrate the human contact that is at the centre of us feeling open-hearted, empowered and alive?

The sessions take place from Monday 17th August for 6 weeks (finishing on Friday 25th September 2020)

The sessions are for anyone who would like to take part, especially those who are seeking sanctuary. If you have children or family at home, they can join in too.
