Creating Kindness with Norfolk and Waveney Mind: The Shambhala Warrior Prophecy – Norwich Theatre Royal

May 21

Explore kindness with Norwich Theatre’s latest take part activities

Norwich Theatre’s take part activities are part of Creative Matters: Kindness Through Creativity, with workshops in partnership with Norfolk and Waveney Mind and fun-filled creative activities for the May half term.

Creative Matters: Kindness through Creativity is a year-long season that will explore how creativity and the arts can inspire change, tell unheard stories, build compassion and create a fairer and kinder society.

During Norfolk Creativity and Wellbeing Week (20 – 26 May), Norwich Theatre will be hosting Creative Kindness, a series of thought-provoking, creative workshops delivered in partnership with Norfolk Waveney Mind.

Radical Acts of Kindfulness (23 May) will explore how to bring powerful mindfulness and self-compassion skills into our everyday lives in simple and unexpected ways.

The Shambhala Warrior Prophecy (21 May) is a thousand year old Tibetan Buddhist prophecy that tells of the rising of regular people who wish to bring about great change and healing through the powers of compassion and insight. Practitioner Jenny Haycocks will lead an accessible workshop exploring the prophecy and its teachings for modern day.

Norwich Theatre has plenty of opportunities for children and young people to get creative during the May half-term with free sessions and half-day workshops.

For dancing fun, try Dance Day (29 May). This session explores ways to be kind to ourselves through dance. Working as a group, create choreography for a short original piece of dance. No dance experience needed, just a passion to move.

Drama Day (28 May) is an extended exploration of theatre making, encouraging creativity, imagination and confidence through performance. Participants will warm up with games and exercises before delving into the piece through acting, directing, movement and physical theatre.

Join an inclusive and free family-friendly sing-along, celebrating voices from across the generations with the Kindness Choir (28 May). The choir is a welcoming space for families of all shapes and make ups to come together and learn some familiar musical songs, accompanied by BSL signing. This session is open to all families to share in the joy of singing, from babes in arms to toddlers and children up to 16 with their grown-ups.

Norwich Theatre is also providing a free resource: the Manual for Kindness, available at the Box Office on 28 May. This printed zine is designed to be inclusive, with 10 pages of creative activities that invite drawing, writing, looking and imagining – suitable for all ages and abilities.
