Festival Here

Between January and July 2012, the Young Women’s Estate-based Performance Project worked on a new piece with the drawing shed, Roisin Feeny (associate producer at The Albany) and two volunteers, Kelly and Sonita.

The new performance was presented on July 1st 2012 at ‘Festival Hereand used film, Twitter and physical theatre in the quad spaces  and streets of Attlee Terrace, exploring how girls use ‘public’ spaces, how contested these spaces are (who owns them?) and how they can feel safer to use local spaces / streets, redefining and examining their rights to be more visible in their communities.

the drawing shed set up the Young Women’s Estate-based Performance Project  in 2010.
The project is supported by partnership organisations, including  Walthamstow School for Girls, Epping Forest’s Branching Out Project and it is funded by Art Council England, Hoe Street Community Fund and Walthamstow and Chingford Almshouse Charity.
