The Julia Award

The Julia Award

The Julia Award

InterActing has created the Julia Award, an award for the most talented creative young person with autism. Whether it’s music, dance, literature, drama, song or any creative expression, the winner will be presented with a Masterclass from someone in his or her discipline he or she admires.

The Award is named after Julia Donkersloot, the very talented singer, who showed that the diagnosis of autism does not have to mean that you cannot use your talents to the fullest. She had an unprecedented perseverance to overcome any obstacle with class, courage and purity. She is an example for anyone who wants to show what they are capable of creatively.

Are you between 12 and 22 and do you love theater, acting, vlogging, storytelling and playing together? Then this is a great week you don’t want to miss!
 
In the last week of the school vacation, we packed four days full of creative activities in Amsterdam and The Hague

The summer school will be held from:
August 14 to 17 in The Hague and from
August 28 to 31 in Amsterdam
 
Four days of inspiring activities, trying out new thingsmaking new friends and having fun together. The class is from 11am to 3pm and the cost for participation is 180 euros. The program includes:
 

• Improvisational theater: it’s a super fun form of theater where you don’t use a script, but come up with sketches on the spot together with your fellow players.
• Vlogging workshop: learn the tricks of the trade from a well-known vlogger and get to work yourself!
• Voice acting in a real studio! This session is led by a famous voice over actor. You will learn what a day in the studio looks like, how a casting works and you will also get to play in the recording studio yourself.
• Writing sketches: How do you make a good story, which parts contribute to it and how can you use your creativity in your story?

 

We will wrap up the program with a final performance for your family, supervisors, brothers, sisters and friends. This way you can show what you have learned at InterActing Summer School. The Boom Chicago musical director adds music to the performance and the technician completes the show with lights, sound and video.

You can sign up for the Summer School at interacting@boomchicago.nl. For questions, you can also call Saskia Maas, 0653671652.
