Ogmius: Mind the Gap hosted supporting staff shadowing
In February 2020 staff members from Moomsteatern and L’Oiseau Mouche visited Mind the Gap in Bradford, UK, for the third job shadowing visit. During the course of the OGMIUS project all partners will get a chance to host a job shadowing visit enabling other staff to observe their work and practice, in order to share and learn from each other’s rich and high-quality training and methods. The shadowing is meant exclusively for staff who support artists with learning-disabilities.
The week at Mind the Gap mainly focused on shadowing Mind the Gap Academy. Mind the Gap has been running performance-based training courses for people with learning disabilities and autism for over 20 years. The Academy courses are now considered amongst the most established and internationally recognised training programmes of their kind. Courses are delivered at the state of the art, fully accessible Mind the Gap Studios in Bradford, which are kitted out with everything a performer could possibly need. Students, artists, teachers, and collaborators share the same space to encourage personal development and sharing of ideas.
