Here Now Us is created for, and by, the community in Lewisham; amplifying voices, tackling issues, highlighting inclusion and taking performances to audiences unable to attend events.
This programme of activity will tackle the topics that matter to the people of Lewisham including access and inclusion, age discrimination and marginalisation.
In May, We Will Be Happy Here by Spare Tyre will bring an all-new sensory interactive installation and workshop experience. Created and made for people with learning disabilities, it explores the desires, ambitions and the things which connect everyone across their differences.
