Jojo Sutherland will lead and facilitate fun, inclusive and free workshops exploring creative thinking using a series of techniques that explain and demonstrate how to build confidence, tackle fears and to find the funny in life. These workshops would bring 8 people living with HIV together online per session in an engaging and creative way, increasing social connection and improving confidence. 

Starting on Wednesday November 4th, the group will progress through 8 sessions, usually weekly, to get the most out of the workshops.

The group sizes are small, but we will be running a large number of these over time with different groups, so please sign up ASAP if interested.

You will be sent a link to join a Zoom video call ahead of time which gets you access to the workshop. No need to prepare, no homework and no reading ahead of time - all you need to bring is your open mind!

Testimonials from previous participants:

"I love camp comedy but I have never laughed so much in my life as I did at the workshop with JoJo. And I learned to speak with more confidence in general as a result.
I have been working and sleeping in my bedroom since March, so by the end of the week I’m exhausted and struggled to switch off.  So when HIV Scotland send an email out offering people with HIV in Scotland an opportunity to take part in online comedy workshops I thought, aye…..go on…and I'm so pleased I have. JoJo is brilliant, she shares her wealth of experience, has spot on observations and the hour flies by. 
A work colleague once said I should be on the stage, now I will be and am looking forward to giving it a go. I’d have kicked myself if I hadn’t grabbed this opportunity, it has helped me get through the past couple months and met with some really decent people. So I’d say to anyone thinking about signing to the next round of workshops to do it.
Global Pandemic and Comedy Workshop" are not things you automatically think belong together. But HIV/AIDS is STILL a Global Pandemic and many of us living with HIV have had our darkest hours and sometimes through that comes a twisted sense of humour.  The workshops have been no different and have become a lifeline during lockdown. HIV Scotland have given me an opportunity to hear about how HIV has affected others, how we navigate that and to build on existing friendships and forge new ones all while learning more about comedy from the fantastic and very funny JoJo Sutherland.
