Spring 2018 It's only Spring but we've already been doing bits throughout 2018. We've been taking our next theatre production VOID across London while Bring Me In continues to engage more and more BAME creatives, looking at ideas of "Making Moves" and being "Homegrown".
If you'd like to stay in the loop with what we're doing – and to be the first to know about upcoming opportunities in the wider creative sector – sign up to our mailing list by putting in your email below. We promise we won't bombard you with emails.
Currently in development
VOID is S+K's flagship show, as our first full-scale production that will tour London in Spring 2019 and the UK in Autumn 2019. Written by Rumi Woolf and directed by Malakaï Sargeant, the show examines and dismantles ideas including the cycle of trauma through an interactive storytelling experience.
The piece embarks on its second phase of research and development through Summer 2018, with a week's residency as the Arcola Theatre aiming to test and explore new ideas intensively, as well as workshops and events lined up across London and the Midlands that delve deeper into the concept of the piece.
BRING ME IN(TO SUMMER 2018)
June, July and August 2018, nationwide
Bring Me Inis a series of networking events curated and produced by The S+K Project, uniquely designed to facilitate creative collaborations between people of colour.
Featuring activities, performances and insightful panel discussions, Bring Me In aims to bring together individuals in a physical space to enhance connections particularly within BAME communities, in order to improve inclusivity, access and ultimately to make the arts for everyone.
We have two #BringIns planned in London and one in Bristol between June and July 2018, with a special edition at this year's SKFEST at Bernie Grant Arts Centre this August. Partnering with organisations including Talawa Theatre Company,Watershed, LIFT and Rich Mix, there's no better opportunity than this summer to meet black and brown creatives.
If you'd like us to come to a city near you, or if you'd be interested in facilitating #BringIns somewhere in the UK, get in touch with Ailbhe now!
SKFEST 2018 OPPORTUNITIES
23-25 August 2018, Bernie Grant Arts Centre
It only makes sense for three years of SKFEST to be three days long, right?
This year's festival is the biggest yet, and we know that we said that last year but it just keeps getting bigger. Join us between 23-25 August 2018 across our new home at Bernie Grant Arts Centre for three days and nights of live literature, music, film, theatre, exhibitions, workshops, drop-ins and more! Event programme to be announced in June, so keep your eyes peeled to see which creatives are taking part this year.
There are several opportunities to get involved in SKFEST this year. If you'd like to take part creatively, feel free to get in touch with Malakaï or Ailbhe. We have all other current opportunities listed below, with priority given to Tottenham (N15, N17) residents who are young (16-25) people of colour, deaf/disabled, or identify as LGBTQ+.
PAID: Trainee Producer (1 day a week between July-August)
We're pleased to announce that our partnership with Spotlight continues, after delivering theatre-making, spoken word and creative writing programmes with them since 2016. We're recruiting for our joint summer project, Play in a Week, by going into schools in Tower Hamlets and the surrounding boroughs throughout April and May.
We understand the devastating government cuts means there are fewer and fewer opportunities for young people from socio-economically deprived areas to engage with the arts, which is why we want to bring it to you this summer! If you'd like us to come to your school, college / sixth form, PRU or alternative education centre, get in touch with our Outreach Coordinator Davidor book through our form here.
