Call out for Lockdown Monologues

Collage Arts are inviting women from black, asian, minority ethnic and refugee communities who live or work in Haringey to become part of an exciting new project: Lockdown Monologues.

Lockdown Monologues aims to shine a light on the unheard stories of women in the borough, who are too often neither given the opportunity nor the platform to share their experiences. We want to make their voices heard to promote greater understanding and develop sensitive creative responses to their stories.

Participants and stories

We are looking for participants of any age who would be willing to share their stories. They could be of particular struggles, challenging situations or funny, joyful anecdotes in times of adversity that they have personally experienced.

The story can be told in the native language of the participant (translator can be arranged) and can be given anonymously.

Sharing of stories

With the participant’s permission, the stories will be turned into a selection of recorded monologues or written stories and will be shared online. We would like to pair up some participants with a professional actress or director who will either perform their story to camera, or help the participant to perform the story to camera themselves.

If you or someone that you know would like to take part please email Andry Moustras at [email protected] by Friday 10th July.

Lockdown Monologues is part of Creative Futures, a Collage Community project supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
