History in Action - what's it all about? 

History in Action (CIC) combines the skills and experience of  heritage consultant Trizia Wells, writer/director Mick Martin and producer/artist/fundraiser Jude Wright. Together we help communities to tell their own stories in their own words, sharing their heritage with new audiences and bringing the past to life through performance. That's History in Action! 

Who are we?

TRIZIA WELLS                                                                                                            email Trizia 
As an oral history specialist Trizia has helped a wide range of communities to record their stories and preserve them for future generations through exhibitions (Recovery? from Flanders to Afghanistan, Leeds Thackray, 2014), digital archives (Rugby League Cares 2017), publications,(Tales of Accrington Market 2018)  and community performance (It's in the Blood! 2017).  Trizia has researched and developed educational films and packages for all ages on subjects such as Partition, (Let's Go Yorkshire), Theatrical History (Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield) and Industrial Heritage (Amazing Accrington film series). This includes working closely with disabled veterans, Asian women's groups, people with dementia and their carers. Trizia's experience as an access manager for a national museum is invaluable when it comes to working with sensitive topics and ensuring that everyone's voice is heard.

Bradfordian Mick Martin has been writing for stage, television and radio since the early 90s, with commissions from Mind The Gap, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Hull Truck Theatre and Deptford Albany Theatres. Since 2007 he has also been one half of Bent Architect (Jude is the other half!) where his work includes Broken Time, about the birth of Rugby League - "a cracking play-nothing short of civil war in studs" (The Guardian), England Arise! about WW1 conscientious objectors and Women in Aktion, produced in partnership with the academic research department at the University of Leeds. Core to Mick's work is the involvement of all levels of the community whose story he is telling.
