Tameside Creative Community (CIC) want to run workshops and interviews with residents to gather material that will then be shaped into a piece of theatre and showcased in a performance in the Autumn in Tameside. We are looking for someone to oversee the first phase of this project; coordinating and running group interviews with the Tameside Community. We want to gather anecdotes, stories and personal experiences of being a resident in Tameside.
Tameside Creative Community (CIC) is made up of local Tameside residents brought together as Tameside Ambassadors for the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Local Exchange programme. They worked alongside the Royal Exchange to bring The Den to Stalybridge in August 2019, a two-week pop-up theatre festival. They are now working together as company to continue to give a platform for local voices and celebrate Tameside with the creation of a performance project called 24 Hours in Tameside, which will result in a performance festival in Autumn 2021.
