Connected Communities Festival 2016: Community Futures and Utopias

‘Threads of time’ is a co-produced participatory arts research project taking place as part of the AHRC’s Connected Communities Festival 2016: Community Futures and Utopias. This project will explore community hopes for the future through a collaborative history, poetry and art project involving diverse Rotherham communities, raising a beacon of hope for the town once again.

Through participatory art and poetry workshops the project will explore what it is like to be British for girls from minority ethnic communities in Rotherham, linking their past family and community history to create a more positive and empowering future for them.
