SPID Theatre is an award winning youth arts charity that nurtures and develops a community of creative and empowered young artists from social housing estates in West London. Estate Endz is the SPID Theatre Heritage project for young people from 13 to 25 years old. In the second semester of 2020 it will be exploring themes around the Race Relations Acts and multicultural Britain in the 1960’s and 1970’s through free online workshops on Zoom.
The project will culminate in an online performance of a Radio Play. Therefore, we are looking for a passionate photographer or archivist to join our team. Our play is set in the 1960s, the time photography became more instant, more accessible and more established as an art form.
