NEW STRANDS, NEW EXPERIENCES

Our strands of work

We presented three new strands of work in our last season, which ran from October 2021 to March 2022.

We will be announcing our new season of events very soon – watch this space!

Slough Black History

Black History is a part of everyone’s history

Working with a Black History Commissioning panel recruited from the Slough community, we supported events and activities to celebrate local Black History.

The projects range from murals to photography, films and podcasts – and all highlight the achievements of Black people who have lived, loved and worked in Slough.

We explored untold and untaught stories of the Black community’s positive impact on Slough and Britain more widely. We showed how Black History is a part of everyone’s history, and how everyday heroes can inspire and empower us all.

Using Black History Month in October 2021 as an inspiration, the events in this strand ran until Spring 2022.

Once Upon A Time In Slough

Stories from the heart of the town

Starting in early 2022, this series of workshops and performances shared people’s stories about what makes the town a place of intrigue, imagination and importance.

Together we uncovered all sorts of tall tales and fascinating fables, rooted in people and place, the telling of which excited and entertained.

Once Upon A Time In Slough was made up of two elements – Story Kits and Campfires.
