Educators are invited to join MTC staff and artists on Zoom for four days of 90min after-school workshops. Each workshop provides insight into our artists' work at MTC and their theatre-making process, plus activities to get creative juices flowing. Participants also have access to Q&A sessions during each workshop, and digital resources to use later in the classroom.
