Excavate make exciting, funny and unusual theatre shows that tell the stories of local communities across the East Midlands. They’ve worked with thousands of people over the last twenty years gathering and sharing local stories in imaginative, playful and thoughtful ways.
We had our first community planning meeting on Monday 8th January at ACTC (Aspley Community and Training Centre, Minver Crescent – a ‘local creative hub’ in the making!) where we talked about our ideas for what the project is and what it might be. We’d very much like to hear your thoughts as to what we might do together, what the project might achieve, and how we can begin to move forward in the coming weeks and months.
You are welcome to join us at our next two community planning meetings on Mon 22nd January, 1pm and Mon 5th February at 1pm at ACTC. Please let us know you can make it by calling Cathy on 07808 165209 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or you’re equally welcome to make a spontaneous decision and just turn up. We’d love to see you.
We know we want to involve as many local people as possible and to work together to make something that really conveys the life and character of Minver Crescent and the people that live there. And that whatever we end up doing together is something that is talked about for a long time afterwards.
If you’d like to know a little bit more about the work that Excavate have done in the past then you can see a film about a project they did in Bilborough (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6y-4GBPd1o) or have a look at their website at http://excavate.org.uk/
