We have partnered with Unlock the Chains Collective to create theatrical interventions for these two exciting on going projects. From early days of the West Indies enslavement and sugar trade through to the journeys of the Windrush generations into today. The lives and stories of those in the West Indies/Caribbean and Britain intertwine.
Windrush The Next Generation
We are sharing and exploring some of Oxford's local voices and stories of the Windrush generation, through theatrical exchanges. Using dramatic monologues, poetry, song, dance, storytelling and creative workshops. Working with community elders, young people and community groups, sharing in the Museum spaces. Keeping the voices of Windrush generations past and present alive and heard.
We are working with a range of Oxford based groups including ACKHI, Oxford Museums Pitt Rivers, Ashmolean, Museum of Oxford, Fusion, Oxford University, Brooks University, BKLUWO, schools and other community groups
