By Nitro and All Change
We commissioned three pairs of poets and composers to work with different community groups and to write and compose a new piece that was performed live and then filmed and broadcast live online via our website. We worked with a wonderful local (to Islington, where we are) community arts company called All Change – look them up online and see what they’re getting up to.
We chose some of the best artists around: Alex Wilson, Robert Mitchell, Arun Ghosh, Yemisi Blake, HKB FiNN and Zena Edwards.
Our community groups covered a wide range of experiences and type: from day centres for the elderly to refugee groups and young people’s projects. The diversity of the community groups was reflected in the work produced.
A LIVE STREAM of the performance took place from this page, just below! We increased audience numbers 100% this way. Viewers could also comment about the show via our live chat room.
