I received this email about a planned performance in Exchange Square in August. Any questions please contact Shaniqua.
Dear Cllr Helen Pollard,
My name is Shaniqua and I am facilitating a pilot project on Sunday August 20th, which will use the arts to bring young people together and develop as youth leaders.
There will be workshops during the first part of the day, followed by a showcase/performance in the evening. I have asked permission for the performance to take place on Exchange Square, and I was enquiring as to whether you could help me liase with the residents in the area.
The performance will be taking place from 6.30-8.30pm. It will encompass poetry, music and drama performances created by young people aged 16-26 during the workshops earlier in the day, and also some work they may have created previously in their own time. We would not need to set up a stage, but we would be using microphones, speakers, some instruments and probably some backing music.
The event should not be too loud, and it is very positive, open to all members of the community. It would be great if some of the residents came and watched.
If there is any more information you need, please let me know.
I hope to hear from you soon.
