Revoluton Update on Creativity in the Heart of Luton's Communities
Jul 25, 2019
The team at Revoluton look to connect, collaborate and create with fellow Lutonians to programme and deliver great cultural opportunities in Luton.
Revoluton's residency programmes aim to do just this, and are currently taking place in Bury Park and Marsh Farm; and also with young people from across the town.
Find out what we've been up to and how you can get involved.
United We Stand, Together We Rise
As part of the Marsh Farm programme, we are collaborating with Marsh Farm Outreach and Luton Urban Radio in a call out to all Marsh Farm artivists - creatives, painters, sculptors, musicians, singers, drummers, spoken word artists, DJs, MCs, sound systems, producers - to join us for an evening of food, music and creative conversation this Thursday 25 July at Marsh House!
Earlier this year we kicked off our Bury Park residency by inviting people who live and work there to join us to discuss:
“What is the creative potential of Bury Park?”
The message we heard was: “We don’t want to be told by the arts world how to be creative or be judged as uncreative. Bury Park is everyday creativity.”
That idea is at the core of our ‘call to action’ short film - Creative Bury Park which we’ve been sharing on social media.
The film is a shout out to all Bury Parkers: JOIN US ON A CREATIVE JOURNEY!
We hope you like it.
Share your thoughts about the film and creativity in Bury Park using the hashtag #CreativeBuryPark.
You also asked for workshops. In June we tested out workshops in Arabic calligraphy and henna art. They sold out in a week! People asked for more!
In August we’ll be announcing a HUGE commission for an artist to work in the heart of Bury Park.
Keep your eyes peeled for more info on this and other exciting projects coming to Bury Park soon!
Revoluton is starting a young people's Creative Revoluton in the town.
There are so many events and creative opportunities available for 16 to 24-year-olds — from Open Mic Nights to creative training, opportunities for volunteering to paid placements.
And don't forget, as part of People Power Passion, Luton's pilot Year of Culture, young people from across the town have been busy working with an incredible creative team rehearsing, writing, devising, and making new music.
See their performance on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 August in St George's Square.
