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 Me. Hackney Museum is a community history museum in the heart of Hackney that explores the history of migration to the Borough over 1500 years.
