Home at The Rising Sun: Cultivation Meeting & 6 pm Performance
Sun 30 April 2017, 17:20 – 18:30 BST
Home at The Rising Sun was a research and development period with a placemaking focus. Over five weeks, Reside Dance worked with historical documents from The Rising Sun Arts Centre, Reading to develop two, 1.5 hour dance workshops (11- 15 years and 16+) and a 30 minute interdisciplinary promenade performance that inspires Reading’s culturally diverse community to collectively reimagine the arts centre as a place of home.
From 5:20 - 5:50 pm on 30th April 2017, Reside Dance will be holding a cultivation meeting at the arts centre which aims to introduce stakeholders (future project partners and funders) to the current project and begin to explore ways in which Home could be brought to various organisations, venues and community groups. It is intended that the meeting also generates new partnerships and future creative aspirations for The Rising Sun Arts Centre also. The cultivation meeting will be followed by a performance of Home at The Rising Sun from 6 - 6:30 pm.
Home at The Rising Sun is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
