Following vibrant and successful collaborations as part of the 2nd Findhorn Bay Festival in 2016 and through our Ignite: Moray Youth Arts project, we are delighted to be partnering once again with Surge to bring new community street theatre to the Forres area.
Now in its 8th year, the Community Street Theatre Tour is one of Surge’s key projects, delivering high quality street theatre workshops and performance opportunities to community participants and emerging artists in rural and marginalised communities across Scotland. The project aims to embed outdoor arts at a grassroots level, leaving local artists with the tools to create their own outdoor arts projects in their communities and showcasing the free and accessible art form of street theatre to new audiences.
Through our current collaboration with Surge, we are delighted to offer 2 creative opportunities;
