‘Come Together’ is an exciting new programme of public events, training, co-creation and commissions exploring these questions and more. It will take place from Summer – Autumn 2021.
The programme is designed to support artists and communities to work together to develop new skills in ‘hybrid’ arts practices (digital and physical) and to co-create new inclusive spaces or experiences. The programme will explore:
– Inspiring examples of practices that mix digital and physical tools and methods
– The barriers and challenges we face in finding safe hybrid ways to come together
– What more inclusive hybrid tools, spaces and experiences could look like
– What we can make to come together differently and how we can share through hybrid means
These questions and more will be explored through:
– public talks and training workshops (Summer 2021)
– four artist and two digital storyteller commissions (Summer 2021)
– showcasing and sharing learning (Autumn 2021)

Throughout this project, members of the Knowle West community will share how they came together during the pandemic. Each week new audio recordings will be added to this page as an introduction to our community and as a way to inspire how we might stay connected in the future.
