Silencer: Hounslow

Mem Morrison and his team are looking to create a piece of art representing the thoughts and feelings of the residents of Hounslow. He will work with children, young people, older adults and families in a special event which brings the whole community together.

Use role-play, writing and imagination to find your inner voice then share it with the world in a unique outdoor arts experience in mid-August.

HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

Would you like to be part of a unique arts project that tells the stories that most matter to you and the people around you?  Then internationally acclaimed performance artist and theatre maker Mem Morrison would like to hear from you.  Be part of Silencer,  a silent march and arts installation, taking place in Hounslow on Saturday 12th August 2017.

For the duration of the march you will be holding a lightweight blank placard, walking alongside fellow crusaders in total silence. We encourage all those taking part to bring along friends, relatives and neighbours to join in the march in support of these simple yet powerful acts of camaraderie.

We want you to tell us about your own personal cause and reason for joining the Silencer march. You don’t need to be political to take part, just passionate about something that is personal to you. You can march for any reason, even on behalf of someone close to you who doesn’t have a voice and has something close to their heart that needs to be heard.  Join us on Saturday 29th July 2017 at Watermans Art Centre, 2-4pm when you will develop and write up your chosen cause with guidance from Mem. The aim is for all participants to write up their personal campaigns & come up with a slogan. Participants will work in pairs and small groups.  The writing part is done solo.

We have seen a lot of people recently on marches across London, for many different reasons. If you were going to march to tell the world about something……what would it be?

Workshop participants must be available to attend the march starting at Bell Square on 12 August 2017 at 4-5:30pm. Click here for more event information.
