Our wonderful collaboration with Travelling Light Theatre Company and Knowle West Media Centre, the Kitchen Circus project will be starting again in June thanks to support from Arts Council England and Bristol City Council. We will be working with three families in Easton, Barton Hill and Bishopsworth, in partnership with artists who specialise in storytelling, visual art and street theatre.
The idea behind the project is to co-create thoughtful, play-filled time, investigating ideas and hidden stories which are built from the place we call home. The heart of it is forming important connections between people and their homes.
During the next stage of the project we want to deepen connections and grow them from family, to neighbour, to wider social environment. This seems more important than ever before to allow families, artists and organisations to reflect on the importance of family, home and what it really means to us as we emerge from the current crisis.
