This summer we have started work on a brand new and very exciting collaboration in Blackburn, Lancashire. Community Interest Company One Voice (http://onevoicenetwork.org.uk) invited us to work with them to help them achieve their first Arts Council funding earlier in the year and they were successful! This project will see Peshkar artists work with their ‘West End Girls’ group of young South Asian women to create a brand new piece of performance to be shared at their annual celebration event in February 2020. To kick off the programme we are holding a series of taster workshops in drama, poetry and dance to get the creative juices flowing. All the girls will also have the chance to achieve a Bronze Arts Award through the programme.
We are really excited to see where this project goes and will be sharing highlights through social media throughout the next few months.
