Creative Engagement

Communities

The Communities programme at Kiln is in its inaugural year. Since September 2022, we have been building new relationships with local communities, as well as developing existing ones. We have developed a series of pilot programmes and existing programmes which aim to listen and advocate for the priorities, heritages and stories of local residents, through the co-creation of events and theatre making.   

Our Communities work is rooted in Brent & North West London and celebrates the unique cultural and artistic life of our local area. Initial pilot Communities activity includes Tickets, Teas and Tours (free tickets, a behind the scenes tour and Q&A with refreshments), Dementia Friendly Screenings (free cinema screenings and activities in partnership with local organisations), Town Hall Talks (events produced in partnership with local artists, community organisations and residents),  Monthly Masterclasses (free workshops for anyone aged 18+ interested in theatre making), Kiln Community Collaborators (paid creative facilitation training for participants aged 25+), Meet the Kiln Team (drop in sessions with Kiln Theatre staff), Move at the Movies (an arts in health movement project for participants aged 50+) and the Listen Local Young Writer’s programme (writing workshops for 18-30 year olds who have never written a play before). 

We are always delighted to welcome local community groups to use Kiln Theatre spaces when they are available.
