The Life Lab: Using My Voice

Fri, October 30, 2020 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM GMT

This workshop will explore developing a voice that fits with who you are: your experience, your history, your world. Find out more about different opportunities to get heard and discover the way that suits you best. You’ll gain confidence in your voice and how you choose to use it. You’ll be guided through the workshop by leaders from Haringey who are experts in voice coaching, the media and communication. Find your voice and make it heard.

Take your first steps into a creative career of your dreams or simply enjoy a fun practical workshop on creativity!

Do you have a specific goal you want to work on? Then let our mentors know before the workshop to get personal support in helping you achieve.
