Ensemble promotes creativity

LOCAL theatre group, Conspire Isis Ensemble, is busy creating a short film to be screened at the Animating Spaces Gladstone Frolic event on September 27.

Ensemble director Natisha Strudwick said the group would be "crazy not to be involved" in the Frolic event, which promotes creativity in Gladstone's youth.

Hamish Keefe plays the main character who loves to look up at the stars, but is frustrated by light pollution.

"I thought it would be really fun and I like acting," he said.

The theatre group is running a free workshop on July 26 and 27 at Gladstone State High School to help young people devise a project to be performed or displayed at the event.

People can work with any creative medium from short films, theatre pieces and poetry performances to songs.

"I think one of the hardest parts of being a young person with an idea is how to make it happen," Ms Strudwick said.

"They might get some editing tips or they might need help with scheduling if that's their weakness."

For information, visit the group's Facebook page.
