Art and Migration Series:
Talk by Douglas Rintoul

Tue 15 December, 7.30 - 9pm

Rivington Place

London, UK

Free event, booking essential

Join us for the final talk in this three-part series exploring creative practices and migration.

Douglas Rintoul, the Artistic Director of Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and the touring company Transport, will discuss the techniques and approaches he employs to reflect stories of migration in theatre.

The work of Transport over the past four years has focused on ways of engaging mainstream theatre audiences with narratives and the experience of migration. Much of the process of making these works has explored possibilities of gaining profound empathy from audiences with narratives that they wouldn’t normally chose to experience.

This event is organised by the Art Activism Network, which was born out of Autograph ABP and Will Essilfie's series of Art Activism Summer Schools in Summer 2015. The Art Activism Network meets monthly at Autograph ABP to share skills and provide feedback to group members; as well as produce a programme of public talks/ workshops to enhance learning in the field.
