Covid-19 Update: (Jan 2021) Due to new lockdown restrictions we are having to reimagine our Reimagine season. All events will either be brought to you digitally or postponed and we will endeavour to update you on specific activities as soon as possible.

Either way we will be continuing to work behind the scenes to bring you some fantastic arts and wellbeing opportunities to enjoy at home!

Email our Programme Manager on [email protected] for more information.

Unity is a community-led project in Tower Hamlets set-up to showcase and engage people in the work of young black people, and is organised by local resident Shadeen Thomas.

 

People miss the feeling of watching performances and performers miss being on stage - bringing creativity to the community. As part of St. Margaret’s House REIMAGINE season, Unity wants to reach out to creatives with a message of hope; inviting actors, dancers, singers, visual artists and all other creatives to come, meet and network with each other; and discuss how working in the creative industry can be reapproached in 2021.

 

Each Unity event will see a performance/s from new groups/collectives/artists followed by a conversation with special guest speakers. February will focus on theatre/dance, and March will be looking at work of visual artists and moving image.

 

“I have many friends who are young, gifted and black creatives and I started Unity as a vehicle for them to showcase their talents to the community and beyond. I also want the next generation of young people to have an opportunity to meet well-meaning industrious role models and be inspired to follow their own path in the future. Unity: together we grow." - Shadeen Thomas

 

Event time: 12-2pm

Doors will open at 11:45am

Organiser

St. Margaret's House

We organise and host a wide variety of gigs, open mics, spoken word nights, exhibitions, film screenings, theatre and comedy performances as well as one-off festivals. We see the arts as a route to community building, wellbeing and social change. Our mission is to promote positive social change by creating opportunities for people to come together and play a more active part in their community. Our projects anchor us in the community, providing spaces for residents to eat, shop, learn, create, and enjoy a diverse cultural program.
