Past Event: Turning Points: Your Story, Your Voice - Theatre Making with Yolanda Mercy

  • Hackney Museum 1 Reading Lane London, England, E8 1GQ United Kingdom

We joined actor and playwright Yolanda Mercy for a theatre making workshop exploring past events that inspired a whole generation of poets, writers, storytellers and actors.

What are the events shaping creatives today? How will the creative world respond to #BlackLivesMatter or #Brexit? Are we at a turning point in history? What happens next? Taking inspiration from Hackney Museum’s new exhibition People Power: Black British Art and Activism in Hackney,  the group explored and developed ideas and learned practical tips about how to turn their ideas into a fully funded show. 

Yolanda Mercy is a critically acclaimed actor and playwright who is currently touring nationally her 4* show On The Edge of MeHackney Museum is a community history museum in the heart of Hackney that explores the history of migration to the Borough over 1500 years.
