SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH

We held the launch of the Heritage Lottery funded WOEFUL PUPPET at St Mary’s Community Rooms in Hackney on 10 August. This project about the events that led to the execution of Lady Jane Grey attracted a lot of interest.

We were so pleased with the wonderfully diverse turnout (especially as its the holidays) and that so many people signed up for trips and training to gain the skills to install heritage exhibitions at St Katherine Kree, Sutton House and the Tower of London.

We will also be producing a documentary, sub-titled interviews with experts, colour booklet and online educational materials.

Olivia and aud

It was also a first outing as presenter for our volunteer Olivia who is hoping to learn heritage skills such as research and archive training and also installation skills such as how to be a Live Exhibit.

As previously we will be holding other outreach events throughout the project.

Edith_Cavell_02

BRUSSELS AT DAWN is being hosted by St Mary’s Church, Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 9ES 2 – 12 November to coincide with Remembrance events.

The installation will be a selection of the pieces previously exhibited at St Martin In The Fields. It is fitting that the community bring their work back to St Mary’s in Hackney as for many of our group it is their local church.

 

 

Unity Arts Selected for National Theatre Connections 500

The National Theatre Connections has been running for 20 years to introduce young theatre makers to the professional arena.

Unity Arts is one of the companies that has been selected to take part in this scheme in 2016.

Our young people are very excited and we are waiting with bated breath to see what theatre we will be allocated.

ROUND OUR WAY – Old Time Music Hall Project

_IGP0785

Unity Arts successfully bid for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to support a project open to all who live in Hackney, Islington or Tower Hamlets who want to learn about the most democratic of art forms, Old Time Music Hall. It echoes all around us, Waterstone’s at Islington Green, Marie Lloyd’s house in Hackney, Wilton’s Hall in Poplar and there are huge audiences for variety leaning TV shows like Britain’s Got Talent.

The project will enable participants of all ages to discover their local history through research, museum visits and talks from local experts from January to June whilst learning new skills to produce an exhibition and performance at Hoxton Hall on 9 June 2012. www.hoxtonhall.co.uk
