📅 August-November 2020
What happens when you team up a group of local residents with a pair of incredible artists (one from Gloucester, one touring)? That’s what ‘Gloucester presents…’ will find out!
We put a community producer and two brilliant artists in a room together, with some money and some time, and asked them to dream up some creative events or activities that local residents would love. They’re making plans right now, and we’re excited to see what they come up with!
Community producer: Aysha Randera
Aysha is a mum of 5 who runs Barton & Tredworth’s Friendship Cafe.
Gloucester artist: Halima Malek
Halima Malek is a Gloucester-based artist and makeup artist whose parents originated from India. She uses words and poems to heal and express herself. She was one of several women invited to read for International Women’s Day at St Mary de Crypt church. She works closely with the Indian and Muslim communities in Gloucester.
Touring artist: TBC
We’re working with Aysha, Halima and the rest of the community participants to choose a touring artist to be part of this project right now!
Where’s it happening?
There are community meetings planned to take place at the Friendship Cafe.
Want to get involved?
If you’re a resident of Barton & Tredworth, we’d love for you to be part of these conversations. Just drop us a line!
