Jack Anthony Taylor
Hurstway Walk, London W11 1WF, UK
1 Jul 3-5pm
A unique Workshop with sculptor Jack Anthony Taylor featured in the Playground Theatre's 'The Lapwing Act'.
As part of KCAW, the Playground Theatre has curated series of events and exhibitions in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the arrival of The Windrush.
Over half of the activity the Playground undertakes is in its local community of North Kensington.
‘Well Read’ their flagship service (which originated in St Charles Mental Health Unit and continues to be delivered there) has engaged over 450 unique participants: Reducing isolation, improving well-being and promoting fun, through reading plays aloud in a group, facilitated by a theatre professional, the priority being participation, not perfection. Well Read is adaptable: Reading to dementia day patients, or mixing professional actors, community members and technology to live-stream Well Read to New York.
Their education projects, in conjunction with Nicholas Kent’s award-winning Grenfell Inquiry plays, have engaged hundreds of young people across London, as have ‘Dalgarno Drama Clubs’, Playground Summer Schools and in housing KAA’s drama department.
The latest service ‘We Start’ is supported by Grenfell Recovery Fund. Locals can make and access arts, develop artistic careers and improve skills. From sculpture to spoken word poetry.
This summer they are celebrating the 75th anniversary of the arrival of The Windrush, specifically the people it brought to our local community.
Join a series of specially Curated Series of Events. All Welcome - Free of charge.
The theatre closed on Sundays.
