Let’s Talk About It
This commission to deliver public performances that explore advocacy through the arts is delivered for The Modernisation Initiative End of Life Care Programme.
The second phase of this programme is targeting Asian Elderly and Black Elderly community groups to produce theatre performances that explore the issues that are important to their communities as they face old age far from the places of their birth. The performances will take place in mid April and have been developed with the support of the National Theatre Studio.
