ISAYiT! Summer Camp has been running in Dublin this week for young people who stutter.
We developed characters from objects, building these into a story involving legendary artist Matilda Treebody. You can see some of her amazing work in the photos!
Fear, happiness and revenge ere themes to draw on in the workshop sessions and gave rise to some exciting and intriguing dialogues between our young actors.
The youngsters added music to the scenes and put on an award winning performance to much applause from the audience.
Confidence was boosted, speaking, listening, acting and communication skills were all developed, as well as a healthy sense of fun and friendship… what was it like to meet other kids who stutter…? “Fantastic” was the reply from one of the ISAYiT! crew.
Special thanks to the Gaiety School of Acting for facilitating ISAYiT!
We’ll be running another one-day workshop this Autumn.

People who stammer are individuals. We all have our own thoughts about stammering, and we have all had our own unique experiences of being a person who stammers.
