We are hugely excited to announce that High Rise Theatre’s upcoming project Merryville is the recipient of the Home Truths Young Company Bursary, in partnership with Cardboard Citizens and Jerwood Charitable Foundation. We can’t wait to see this brilliant project grow, develop and take shape so keep checking the website for more updates as this insightful piece of work progresses.
Thanks to all who applied the for the bursary, the response was amazing and we are inspired to see how many emerging artists are engaged in making work about the issue of housing in the UK.
This award has been developed from the Home Truths symposium we ran in partnership with Cardboard Citizens on 20th February. The event brought together theatre makers and housing activists to ask the question, ‘What can theatre do about housing?’. To find out more about this inspiring day, click below to watch the film:
