Star Covid-19 Workshops
Between April and July as a response to Covid-19 One to One Development Trust worked with Star Bereavement delivering an online arts programme for children and young people who have suffered loss.
Poem by Matt Abbott
Matt Abbott brought his unique and engaging poetry session to work with two different age groups exploring different types of poetry and giving a fresh look at the spoken word. Inspired by the project Matt wrote and recorded a poem for Star.
The Story of Star Bears Book
The first 4 sessions were delivered by Amy Charles with Judi Alston - the group produced poems and artwork as well as a story about Star Bears (given to each child on referral to Star Bereavement). Andy Campbell pulled together the children' art work and story to create an online booklet.
As well as the Star Bears story the participants created their own poster poems. Click to see them larger.
