About this event

This workshop is the first event as part of the project 'From Under the Same Skies'. Artist Phiona Richards will lead participants in a two-hour session of creative activities. One of these activities is painting the simple wooden spoon. Participants will also get to bake with the help of some of our Romanian bakers. Michal Spisiak of RYG Films will be there to capture the action on film. Participants will be invited to contribute to the wider project which is a film exploring the experiences of our Romanian neighbours currently living in Wellingborough.

From Under the Same Skies

'From Under the Same Skies' is a collaboration between Michal Spisiak and Emma Matthews. Together they will work with participants to create a film that looks into the common experiences to be found between one country and another. In this particular film, we will be speaking to residents of Wellingborough who have moved here from Romania. With their input and guidance, the film will be used a way of reaching out beyond their daily contacts to let the rest of the community know about their experiences.

Sleeping Radical

She has created narratives for performance art, theatre and film. Emma strives to speak up for those who have been overlooked or have no platform of their own. She has worked with groups of all different ages to support their own creativity and encourages all that she works with to find their creative voice. Her artistic ambition is to create connections between people and the places we live using stories that tell of shared experiences.
