Why should I get involved?

First, you'll enjoy it! We know first hand that strangers become friends through exploring shared experiences. And there's nothing like the excitement and challenge of putting on a performance to forge connections and lasting friendships.

You'll be bringing untold or forgotten stories to new audiences, doing your bit to make sure your community's heritage is remembered.

You'll gain a stronger sense of the place in which you live/work/play, your connection to it and those people who share that connection.


You'll learn a range of skills, not just performance and production. We need researchers to trawl through document and picture archives, interviewers to ask people about their memories and record them, social media geeks to spread the word and build our audience, tech. geeks to digitize everything so it's accessible online, and enthusiastic people to help put on exhibitions or publish a book about our projects.
