Confidence Workshop with Seymour Mace

Tuesday, 19 March 2024
5.45 – 8.15 pm

This is a workshop about confidence.

You might have writer’s block, you might have an upcoming public speaking engagement, you might be feeling low about your creative ideas in general or you might be scared of talking on the phone.

Either way, this workshop is for you!

You might be feeling good about all those things and still get a lot out of attending.

Seymour will lead a series of interactive activities based their experience as a comedian. These are designed for you to overcome barriers to feeling, thinking and being confident, building on the everyday performances we all undertake. The event will be fun with participatory elements.

Come along, meet other artists, learn from an excellent facilitator, enjoy the activities and boost your confidence!

If you book an online ticket, a Zoom link will be emailed to you in the days before the event.
