WHERE WE LIVE AND WHAT WE KNOW - PHASE 1

Where We Live and What we Know is an ongoing project from Charnwood Arts as part of People Making Places. This first phase of the project began to take place in 2017 with the development of a series of drawings focused on a selection of villages in the central part of Charnwood embracing the forest, river valley and wolds. The drawings form part of a series produced by Paul Gent that will be turned into an e-publication and exhibited at a range of locations in the borough.

JANAM PERFORM 'MACHINE' ' at Fearon Hall

Charnwood Arts were privileged to host a performance and talk from pioneering street group Jana Natya Manch (Janam) from India at Fearon Hall in Loughborough in 2013.

 

Jana Natya Manch (People's Theatre Front; Janam for short, meaning "Birth") is a New Delhi-based amateur theatre company specializing in left-wing street theatre in Hindi. It was founded in 1973 by a group of Delhi's radical theatre amateurs, who sought to take theatre to the people. Theatre personality Safdar Hashmi is the best-known figure associated with the troupe.
