And here’s what our participants & parents say:
‘I really like coming to SPID, because it isn’t like some kind of posh thing. It’s like a really basic place. It’s like a community.’
Alabama Nutt, Kensal House
‘I’m Angie, Alabama’s mum. I think she’s got more confident. To be honest I couldn’t afford to put her in anything other than this, I don’t think any of the parents of the kid’s that come here could be paying for them. The work they’ve done has been so adventurous’
Angela Nutt – Parent
‘SPID really just bring council estates to life.’
Reece Lewis, Dalgarno estate
“The way SPID works is so original. The company really believes in the imagination of young people.”
Susan Lant, St Charles Estate
“I’m so pleased that SPID has started working on my estate. Young people around here are desperate for something to do.”
Siglinde Buhl, Peabody Estate
ORAL HISTORY PROJECT
Do you live on a local estate? Share your voice! Join our Oral History Project!
Do you have memories, views and experiences of Lancaster West estate that you’d like to share? S.P.I.D. Theatre Company is working with local young people to explore the heritage of west London estates.
We need local residents of all ages to participate in oral history interviews conducted by the project participants (aged 13-25) and led by Rib Davis from the British Library. These interviews will inspire the young people to create our very first online verbatim theatre performance!
We are looking for people to be interviewed for 45 minutes online on 30th May.
During Each block of workshops, our participants nominate two members of their group to act as youth ambassadors. These two young people represent their peers, help promote the project and get involved in some social media takeovers!
