‘Harambee’ (meaning ‘coming together’ in Swahili) is inspired by the rich stories from our area. Working with members of the Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and surrounding community, it will shine a light on the vital political history of the area which has often been of national importance.
From Notting Hill Carnival to the Mangrove 9 and Michael X, many significant moments in recent British history happened on the doorstep of the Gate Theatre.
This intergenerational exchange between our Young Company and older community members, will culminate in an archive that charts the story of the community.
CALL-OUT FOR PARTICIPANTS
If you are interested in sharing your memories of Notting Hill/Ladbroke Grove and the surrounding community we would love to hear from you. Your participation can be as little or as much as you want it to be, from simply having a chat to taking on a larger role.
If you have any questions or would like to participate in the project, please email email@example.com with Harambee Project in the subject line or call us on 0207 229 5387.
This project is supported by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Arts Grants Scheme.
