Walthamstow Performing Arts Collective

Introducing WPAC

Introducing Walthamstow Performing Arts Collective (WPAC) sees us taking over a shop unit on 38 Hoe Street and presenting a public programme from Thursday, 4th December 2014 until Sunday, 14th.

With this we bring visual art, theatre, dance, music, science, film and food. WPAC sees a community coming together to share across the spectrum and see what the future holds. Can wE17 have a community-led performance space?

Events include Mummy Look! storytelling sessions for young children; workshops such as Voice Workout for Stage & Public Speaking by Richard Hollingworth, and Colour Naming and Colour Matching by Dimitris Mylonas and Silvia Sampons; live music from Raagnagrok, Colin Potter, Tom Wheatley & Andrew Lisle; visual arts and moving image by Sadie Edginton, Charlotte Wendy Law, Layla Rosa, Suzanne van Rossenberg and Carla Cruz; All Together Now, song and story telling with Philippa Buxton and much more.

We are an informal group that would like to create a venue for performing arts in Walthamstow. We miss a local space where groundbreaking artistic practice emerges and develops, and where practitioners and audiences can interact.

With the Collective for Performing Arts we envision an informal space for testing new ideas and showcasing performing arts including music, theatre, spoken word, live art and more. We would like to see this space to be led by and for its users - artists and audiences alike.

You have come across us right at the beginning. The envisioned venue doesn’t exist. It must be built.

If you’re interested to contribute in any form, then join us for one of our next meeting - see details above. If you can’t make it, but would like to keep updated, subscribe below.
