Come Together – A New Creative Community
Be part of a project launching January 2021 – OPEN TO ALL!
Building on the success of 2019s project, The Lost Letters, we are forming a new creative community of people who are interested in working together using music, words, movement and theatre to make new connections across generations, share ideas and experiences and tell the stories of what is important to them. We will meet regularly – initially online (and in person when this is possible again), working with a team of experienced leaders, and with visiting guest artists from across Saffron Hall’s programme.
Our first project will run online (via zoom), from 20th January to 10th March 2021, with meetings on Wednesday evenings 7pm-8.30pm. We will work with Theatre Director, Rachel Yates, composer Sam Glazer and musicians from Saffron Hall’s resident orchestra Britten Sinfonia across six weeks and finishing with an online sharing event on 10th March 2020.
Absolutely no prior experience or special skills are necessary and the sessions will be fully inclusive for everyone.
(projects have limited capacity so please register your interest as soon as possible – in the event we are unable to offer you a place on our first project, we will let you know as soon as future sessions are announced).
To register your interest please complete the online form here or if you would like to discuss the project further drop us an email at email@example.com and we will get in touch with you.
Come Together is A Saffron Hall project, co-produced with Orchestras Live, with support from Essex County Council and Arts Council England. Also supported by Uttlesford District Council. In Partnership with Britten Sinfonia.
Participant feedback from the Lost Letters
“I felt valued and as if my voice was heard… and all the while I could feel the total support from the other participants and the creative team. It is something I will never forget (and am hoping will continue as the benefits have been immense – it has been like stealth therapy.)”
“I for one feel as if something deep inside me has been rekindled. Something I haven’t felt since I was a child. I still have something to offer and a voice to be heard”
“This project seems to have reached part of me that the others just haven’t managed to… that Heineken moment, which just shows my age. Something creative, exploratory, disciplined, but above all, something done in conjunction with likeminded people.”
“Something changed when I left Junior School. That feeling of freedom and that anything was possible and that confidence in myself seemed to be hidden away. For many years it has been looking for a voice and I think that it just might have found one.”
“I had not been involved in any dance, music or drama since school and even then these were not my main interests… However, I am so glad that I got involved! The project has given me the opportunity to meet new people, try out new things and experience a really supportive collaborative atmosphere”
