UKRAINE APPEAL
WELCOME PACKAGE AND TROJANS TOUR

 

UKRAINIANS' WELCOME PACKAGE

In consultation with the Ukraine Community Centre in London W11, we are putting together a Welcome Package for Ukrainian refugees. Refugees, when they arrive, need a community, help, and support.

TROJANS DRAMA WORKSHOPS AND PLAY

Added to this, we are creating a brand new production of The Trojan Women, with a cast of Ukrainian, Syrian and Afghan refugees and host community members - with a core cast of those who have been professional actors in their own countries. We are running a series of weekly community drama psycho-social support workshops in different areas.

 

The workshops will culminate in a production of The Trojan Women. The refugee participants work their own stories into the text of the play.  The aim of this project is to help refugees to overcome their feelings of isolation, depression and trauma and give them a platform to tell their stories to the world.

The weekly drama workshops include a hot meal and a creche for participants' children.

We are starting our pilot project in London W10, partnering with the Dalgarno Trust W10, the Ukrainian Community Centre and Playground Theatre W10. We will also run a subsequent project in London SW10, partnering with the Chelsea Theatre. We are currently looking at two more theatres in South and East London. Our intention is to tour this project country-wide over the next two years.
