New Greenham Arts Workshop
Sunday 14 October 10.30am – 5.30pm
Did you visit or stay at the Greenham Common Women’s Peace camp? If so you are invited to take part in a creative workshop at New Greenham Arts in Newbury, facilitated by VDT’s director/choreographer Charlotte Vincent and participatory artist Ruth Ben-Tovim from Encounters.
The workshop will explore and share memories and experiences from time spent at Greenham Common, revisit the politics of the time and translate these personal stories into performative acts to share in the afternoon.
A younger generation of local women will join the group to engage with original Peace camp women to discuss how the history of the Greenham peace camp has touched their lives. After this unique gathering, the local women will have a follow up session on the themes of protest and hope and will explore what they would be willing to make a stand for now.
The workshop is free but advance booking is necessary. Everyone attending the workshop will also be offered free tickets to see Vincent Dance Theatre’s new show Motherland on Friday 5 October at the Corn Exchange Newbury.
