Kama is a Mid-Wales-based storyteller, theatre-maker and arts manager who initiates a range of arts projects with and for rural communities. For this Professional Development Lab she is working with Andrew Sterry, a collaborative theatre-maker from Mid-Wales, who creates work in a range of spaces, from care homes and day centres to community settings and theatres.
Common Ground explores these artists’ shared curiosity for making work in rural landscapes and collaborating with the communities that inhabit them – more specifically, the spaces we call “commons.” The common land. What is it to feel part of these spaces?
Common Ground will involve seeing work, attending symposiums and workshops and being mentored by artists who might help support their journey. Thinking about what logistically goes into making outdoor work, meeting with professionals who produce landscape theatre and collaborating with a diverse array of organisations, the idea is to build foundations for creative “strategies” and get inspired by some brilliant people, projects and ideas.
