Offthe_page Creative Practice is a community-based group led by

 

Agne Siauciunaite and Gareth Rees-Wells

 

'We organize and facilitate numerous community projects based in Newham, London.  Our purpose is to create a relaxed and playful environment for adults to explore and enjoy the arts at any level. This workshop is recommended for both experienced and inexperienced.  Anyone interested in movement, Acting, and singing who maybe hadn't had a chance or the time. This is the place for you. Explore your talent. You have it. We simply invite you all to meet up and play!'

Offthe_Page Creative Practice has begun its journey when Agne and Gareth met at the University of East London, both were studying BA in Theatre Studies and Community Arts Practice. After organizing numerous projects, they both realized their share common goal: to establish the space to dance, sing and act without judgment, create a space where anyone could participate, and have an opportunity to meet industry professionals. It has become an experimental platform for adults who have possibly had a desire to dance, act or sing, but have never had a chance to.

 

"This is exactly how it works, we meet guest artists who have an opportunity to run each workshop and meet our participants. We are both art practitioners and creatives both always looking for different inspirations and new challenges in regards to our creative practice"

 

Our first workshop 'Am I a Dancer' started in September 2016, the response from participants was so positive, that we continued running these workshops and introduced 'Am I an Actor' and 'Am I a Singer' as the result. We have paused our workshops during UK national lockdown and were happy to reintroduce our workshops to the local community. We have recently become part of CREATE YOUR DOCKS Funding Programme by Royal Docks Team and have recently introduced our 12-week AmIanActor workshops

 

 looking forward to reintroducing and meeting old/new faces to continue this beautiful journey. Our aim is to create a commune, where everyone feels welcome and is able to share their inner child where they can be immersed in play, movement, and voicing. It is also an opportunity for our guest artists to share their material, practice whatever they are working on. We hope to see you very soon!'.

We are always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect offthe_page@hotmail.com
