The Guildford Shakespeare Company has launched a new well-being programme, Everyday Miracles, to reduce social isolation during lockdown. The new six-week course of online content is intended to cover the gap left by the GSC’s outreach projects, which have had to be postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

GSC’s Outreach programmes are designed to promote social mobility and combat social isolation in some of Surrey’s most disadvantaged communities.

The programme, co-created by Francesca McInally (Education & Outreach Operations Manager) and Ant Stones (Head of Education & Outreach Development), runs until Friday 10 July, with free content premiered throughout the week. Content will initially be available to those groups with whom the GSC has worked since 2018 with their Brave New World projects.

Ant Stones said: “We were devastated not to be able to deliver our programmes to the people with whom we have been establishing such a positive relationship and achieving great results. We’re delighted that GSC has received funding to enable this new programme to happen.”

Everyday Miracles was made possible through funding from The Community Foundation for Surrey and Arts Council England, and is part of GSC’s ongoing programme of work within the community.
