Storytelling with Blind Vets UK
In February 2020, Blind Veterans commissioned Extant to present a series of workshops in Llandudno for visually impaired participants, facilitated by Elizabeth Wainwright and assisted by Owen Pugh.
Over the course of a week, participants learned and developed storytelling skills, culminating in a live performance. Members of the group also learned chorus singing as a storytelling device, including the telling of Welsh folktales.
“The week went amazingly well… [the participants] all said how much they’d felt challenged, pushed and elated” – Elizabeth Wainwright, lead facilitator
