We’re delighted to be working with artist @sarahtaylorsilverwood on a new commission for 18/19. Sarah is launching an award to celebrate women. The award will focus on honouring the many important and varied roles that women play, and will culminate in a new series of portraits by Sarah of the award winners. The women will be nominated by people in #Sandwell and portraits will be shared in community centres and libraries across the borough. . .

#WorldPoetryDay – we’ll be working with performance poet #EmmaPurshouse on a commission for 18/19 called #TiptonTales Emma will work with local residents to produce a site-specific piece of spoken word theatre with a loose but coherent narrative that will be set and performed in a building / location in #Tipton (one of the six towns in the borough of Sandwell). The history of the building and the people and families who inhabited or frequented the place will be represented as spoken word pieces linked together to represent the diversity of voices in #Sandwell – they will be created by both Emma and artists she collaborates with. Collaboration is one of Emma’s preferred methods of working and she has previously written and performed pieces in this way, including a show which was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. . . . . #spokenword #performancepoet #MultistoryArtist #participation #collaboration #community #connected #communitystories #TheMultistoryCollection #6townsofSandwell
