Trellick Tales is back next month, from October 3rd, with more free sessions for 13-25 year olds. The BBC has been making a documentary on the project and the Victoria and Albert Museum will be involved too! This is young peoples’ chance to make a radio play with this exciting project, winner of the Clore Duffield Foundation prize. There are limited places so sign up quick: http://spidtheatre.com/wordpress/trellick-signup/
Sessions take place 12-5 on Saturdays in Trellick Tower, W10. For each session attended some expenses are available and all trips and workshops are completely free. Young people will develop audio recording, performance and script writing skills while learning about the heritage of Trellick Tower. They will use specialist studio equipment and will research the area’s history by talking to elderly residents about their memories. Their work creating a radio play will be accredited to give them a qualification.
Trellick Tales builds on SPID’s groundbreaking work bringing council estates to life through arts and heritage work. The charity is based in Kensal House estate, Ladbroke Grove, where they create youth shows, professional tours and films. They bring audiences together to nurture community life with events which are interactive, promenade or immersive. Prizes include Time Out Critic’s Choice, Fringe Report Best Outreach Company, and First Light Award for Best Film.
