Workshops: 25 July – 5 August 10am-1pm | Performances: 6 August 12-2pm | FREE
LOOKOUT is a participatory theatre project and performance created by 8-13 year olds and local artists Andy Field and Beckie Darlington. Watch the trailer HERE.
What will the future of Hackney look like? In an attempt to answer this question, through 2 weeks of workshops, 8-13s will explore things like architecture and urban planning, technology and the environment, politics, community and science fiction.
There are a limited number of workshop spaces left, to book and for more info please click HERE.
The performances on the 6 August are free, and will involve each of the children sharing their vision of the future through one-on-one conversations with audience members, at the breathtaking rooftop setting of Zetteler Studios in Hackney.
