We are happy to announce that we have been successful with our most recent Grants for The Arts bid and the R&D of our new project Free To Stay will be supported by Arts Council England! We are over the moon and looking forward to working with all involved. Free to Stay is a project exploring statelessness and what it means to have, or not have, a nationality. We will be taking the project to communities across the UK including Barnsley, Bradford, Leeds, Teeside and Camden to name a few, asking what identity means to you. We will be working with people that have first hand experience of statelessness, facilitating workshop events, leading debates and gathering real-life accounts. We have been building relationships with organisations and groups that offer support to Asylum Seekers and Refugees and are delighted to be able to continue to offer creative learning opportunities exploring the themes of the show in the areas we visit.
We are pinching ourselves when we look at the list of partners who are supporting the project and whose expertise has already been invaluable, a massive thanks to you all: Arts Council England, ARC Stockton Arts Centre, The Civic Barnsley, Theatre in the Mill Bradford, Slung Low’s HUB and The Carriageworks Leeds.
