Listening With Your Eyes

listeningeyesYou are invited to a free workshop “Listening With Your Eyes”, taking place on Thursday 26th April in Café Lomas (at the new Stratford Hospital).  Listening With Your Eyes is delivered by Vamos Theatre Company.  You may have heard of their production ‘Finding Joy’ about a grandson who cares for his grandmother who has dementia.

Listening with your Eyes explores practically the many ways in which we make connections, with the emphasis on the non-verbal. It looks at the impact of body language, mood, eye-contact, touch, and gesture, and shows how tone of voice can change the meaning of the words we say. The workshop offers an opportunity for participants to see the powerful effect of non-verbal techniques, and their benefit in helping us make real and honest connections –particularly with those living with dementia.


There are two workshops available on Thursday 26th April – at 10.30am & 1:30pm.

Parking is available at Stratford Hospital but it is not free.

If you are interested in attending please contact marie.darwen@stratford-dc.gov.uk and please state if you would prefer the morning or afternoon session.

Please note that one of workshops will be filmed by Vamos theatre, however we don’t know which one yet.
