Community Engagement

Kiln Theatre’s Creative Learning programme has been renamed Creative Engagement. We believe that the closer we’ve worked with our communities in the past few years the more the relationship has been a dialogue between us and the name Creative Engagement better reflects our intention. We all learn from each other. Here’s how you can engage with us in the future…

Town Hall Talks

Stimulating panel discussions, which provoke the themes of the work on our stage or urgent political issues of the current climate.

Date: Tues 26 November

Time: 7pm Start

Venue: Baldwin Studio, Kiln Theatre

About: Join playwright, Chinoyerem Odimba and The Guardian journalist and writer, Madeleine Bunting for a thought provoking discussion about what it means to care in 21st Century Britain, who’s responsibility it is to care and how these questions relate to Kiln Theatre’s community play The Seven Ages of Patience. Hear first-hand how the play was developed, as we consider fundamental questions about the ways in which we can create a more friendly society.

This talk is made possible by the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and The National Lottery Players.

Tell us your story

Tell us your story

What does a friendly society mean to you? Do you have a story to tell about how people and communities have looked after each other across the years? Is there an untold history that you think people should know about? If so the Friendly Society Team would love to hear from you.

To do this we want to meet people from all different backgrounds and walks of life to talk with our team about their experiences of care, friendship and community.

For those wishing to take part there may be the opportunity to formally record your Oral History*

Oral history is the recording of people’s memories, experiences and opinions. It is:
• A living history of everyone’s unique life experiences
• An opportunity for those people who have been ‘hidden from history’ to have their voice heard
• A rare chance to talk about and record history face-to-face
• A source of new insights and perspectives that may challenge our view of the past.
