Your Home Is Important. What if your home was in danger?
S.P.I.D. Theatre Company announces its new project Estate Voices, in collaboration with the Silchester Resident’s Association.
Beginning on 15th January 2019, adults from the area around Kensington and Chelsea will get the opportunity to partake in an 11 week programme, learning how to work with organisations to increase awareness of at-risk estates and local spaces.
The free workshops take place Tuesdays 7-9pm from 15th January at The SPACE, 214 Freston Road W10 6TT (excluding 12th February). The workshops are drop-in on a weekly basis, although we encourage you to attend all if possible.
Participants will explore different routes for advocacy and organising their campaigns on Social Housing. Workshops will offer skills on grant applications, marketing, getting useful press coverage and study other successful campaigns in the local area. We invite you to join us on Tuesdays to develop a toolkit of skills that can be used to create your own projects and engage with your own community.
Estate Voices will bring awareness to spaces in danger of being demolished and support Silchester Estate’s residents as they create new communication channels to strengthen their community. The workshops are open to all social housing residents in the local area and those wanting to contribute to local campaigns protecting shared community spaces.

Here’s what Helena Thompson, our Artistic Director, has to say:
‘SPID has always been inspired by the passion, wisdom and solidarity of North Kensington’s council estate residents – making their voices heard has never been more crucial, now and for the future’
