Programme Overview: Estate Endz

Estate Endz is part of SPID Theatre’s Living History program, which teaches young people aged 13-25 London wide about social housing’s heritage. It dramatises the memories of social-housing residents, as well as the rich social, cultural and architectural heritage of social housing in the area. We give young people the chance to create, research and perform their own work in collaboration with professional creatives and oral history experts from the British Library.

Every Estate Endz project is different. In the past our young people have shot films, curated exhibitions, performed immersive drama pieces and written radio plays exploring the history around them. Previous partners for these projects have included the National Archives, DTA Radio, The Museum of Brands and the Bush Theatre.

Alongside Estate Endz, SPID’s Living History programme also includes Step Up, which provides professional opportunities to champion housing justice by using art for advocacy. Current or former participants in SPID’s other programmes are often given the opportunity to take part in Step Up, which can involve paid opportunities.
