COLLAGE ARTS – Connecting Creative Communities across Europe – hosts the Taking Part festival on Saturday 5 September 2015 as the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham will be transformed as a celebration of the role the arts is playing in building a new Europe.
Manoj Ambasna, Director of Collage Arts in Haringey, explains: “For many years now Collage Arts has been working with like-minded organisations across Europe. These partners are achieving social and economic change in their communities – whilst delivering performing and visual arts of the highest standard. So we are celebrating all that these organisations have achieved. I believe now is the time to bring together our creative energies to show how participation in arts and cultural activities can help shape the Europe we want to live in and where no one gets left behind.”
Taking Part, will take place from 12(noon) until 5.30pm and the square will be transformed into a music venue with live music. The theatre will offer a rolling program of international performing artists. Highlights of the afternoon will include: Jazz from Italy, Folk from Poland, Circus and Acrobatics from Croatia, Exhibitions from Cyprus, Street Artists from Spain, Films from Slovenia and Estonia, Speakers from Greece and Netherlands, and Storytelling from Denmark. We’ll also have a ‘Young Gifted & Back’ stage featuring many of the successful young artists from Tottenham and Haringey with many special guests, Johnny Kalsi and the Dhol Foundation, Amina Khayyam Dance Company, Street Performers of all sorts, stalls and much, much more…….
