This summer, NOW are working in partnership with Lovebox Festival and Citadel Festival on a local community project for young people called ‘Situate’. Devised and facilitated by NOW, the project aims to work with local people from Tower Hamlets, Newham & Hackney aged 16 – 24 in order to design, create and build a unique performance and seating area for audiences to enjoy whilst at the festival. During Lovebox and Citadel, the space will be brought to life through spoken word and lyrical flash mobs.
As well as working with multiple community groups, artists and producers, we will be working in collaboration with MC Angel on this amazing project. Channel 4 recently filmed a documentary on her ‘all female’ hip hop night at Passing Clouds, London, called ‘Lyrically Challenged”. We will also be working with NOW’s Matt Nightingale who is our in house creative production mastermind and artist.
We will be running 4 weeks of sessions in June, training and developing participant’s skills in design, performance, production and the arts.
