From mid October we will be running a new Toonspeak Recovery Programme. Depending on Government Advice and completion of our own risk assessments, this programme will either be fully digital or blended (a combination of both digital and physical delivery).
More details on this programme will be shared as it becomes available but we do not expect to be running any face to face workshops before the October school holiday period but we will begin delivering revised group classes that can be delivered online.
We are continuing to update our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) on a Friday.
We’ve put together some FAQ’s to help explain what’s happening and will keep adding to this page as things become clearer.
If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]
What are Toonspeak doing just now ?
We’ve been running three projects since March – Projects by Post, Creative Calm and Digital Access to Creativity. You can find out all about these on the Projects page of the website. And check out the Gallery http://toonspeak.co.uk/digital-diary-gallery too to see some of the fantastic work which has been created.
Projects by Post has now finished; Digital Access to Creativity will be ending in September; Creative Calm will take a break in September and then restart again. We’ll let you know dates as soon as we can.
Meanwhile, all the team are working from home but you can still contact us – we’d love to hear from you!
WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT?
Is Toonspeak going to start back?
Toonspeak is still alive and kicking! After the October school holidays we will be offering a new digital programme. Details of this will be released nearer the time. We cannot say for certain at this stage if we will have any building based activities but we will keep you posted.
Will the groups be on the same days and times as before?
Not necessarily – we’ll have to think about how many people we can have in a workshop now so you will notice a difference to the programme.
When are we going to have groups again?
We will be looking at what groups we can run digitally and physically from October – December, so we can’t answer this quite yet but we will be in touch with all of our Toonspeak participants as soon as we have news to share.
Do I need to complete a consent form, even if I was at Toonspeak before lockdown ?
Yes, you will. We have a new form that all of our participants need to fill in. You can check with us if you’re not sure if you’ve done this yet. But without a form, you won’t be able to take part in any activities. We miss you all so much and want to see you so please make sure you get signed up so that we can!
