The exploration of art activism and ‘big’ questions through performance and music continues as Dartington Live recommences its seasonal programme, this autumn. The conversation begins with the Rebellious Sound Archive.
Rebellious Sounds is ‘the ﬁrst community archive collection of oral histories about the activism of women in the South West’ created by Dreadnought South West.
Housed within a voting-booth style environment, the Rebellious Sound Archive includes excerpts from the oral histories collected have been loaded on to interactive voting cards.
It’s a compelling and ear-widening experience.
The themes of activism are continued in The Cause writing workshop, in advance of performances of The Cause itself.
The Cause is a story of an imagined meeting between Millicent Fawcett and Emmeline Pankhurst (read the review on the PRSD).
The writing workshop will explore what it means to write a rebellious sound. ‘This will be an opportunity to write, speak, discuss and debate to capture your rebellious voice,’ says the blurb.
Craftivism and cake
Expression, dialogue and activism continues with a Craftivism Workshop.
Tea, cake and the history of women and the vote on the menue for Eqauli-teas, led by Tomas Williams, the UK Parliament’s Education and Engagement Officer for the South West.
