Why Should I Do It?
Studies have shown that taking part in an arts activity has a positive influence on mental health and general wellbeing. It can increase self-esteem and confidence, reduce feelings of isolation and give those involved a sense of personal achievement.
Trestle Theatre Company is a mask and physical theatre company which engages young people in creative activity.
Bonnie Singh provides counselling in a way that meets the needs of young people as defined by themselves.
To express an interest please contact Trestle Theatre Company’s Creative Project Manager Karene Horner-Hughes firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘M-ASK’ or telephone 01727 850950
