People with Disability take the stage with Mai-Wel’s new Supported TAFE Program!

Do you have a passion for dance, theatre and events, have a disability and live in the Hunter Region?

Mai-Wel’s Creative Arts are calling all creative performers and artists to come along to their newest, inclusive 12 Month Supported Program, which will be run in Collaboration with TAFE NSW in Newcastle.

Mai-Wel has just recently wrapped the ‘A Sense of the City’ Newcastle initiative, where participants spent 12 weeks developing an immersive audio and visual exhibition based on the history of Newcastle. Now, Mai-Wel are excited to once again return to Newcastle to provide a supported TAFE program, from which participants will earn an accredited Certificate III in Community Dance, Theatre and Events.

This 12 month TAFE program will commence on July 16th and is absolutely FREE!

Participants will be learning all thing:

  • Acting and performance techniques
  • How to use music, singing and dance in theatre performance
  • All the behind the scenes audio, lighting and production skills that go into operating a live performance!

By the programs end, participants will perform their own show to a live audience, filled with lights, music and applause!

Mai-Wel’s Creative Arts Mentors will be there the whole way, offering support to participate with confidence in the TAFE classroom one day a week. Along with this they will be provide assistance with assessments, bookwork and homework throughout the course.
