Create for Stephen Lawrence Day – Anti-racist writing and performance under lockdown

NREC is commissioning Kezzabelle Ambler Published Performance Poet & Weaving Words Facilitator and Marvin Kudzanai of Lemonpop Workshops to deliver FREE remote one to one creative writing workshops with local individuals to develop performances pieces or creative reflections.

The objective of the remote delivery is to develop at least four performance pieces that can be recorded and processed as raw film data which will be used to develop one of more film productions to commemorate Stephen Lawrence Day.

Stephen’s story is both challenging and inspirational. He was a regular young person who made the most of everyday opportunities. He was born and grew up in south-east London. Tragically, his dream of becoming an architect was never realised. On 22 April 1993, at the age of just 18, Stephen was murdered in an unprovoked racist attack. He didn’t know his killers and his killers didn’t know him.

The workshops will focus on racial justice, promoting good relations, elimination of racial discrimination.

Participants will be invited to participate using the online service ZOOM and need to have clear expectations about what behaviour is acceptable from all participants.

Please note that Consent Forms are to be completed before commencing as part of Safeguarding Procedures.

The workshops will be delivered between the 2nd of April till the 11th of April and will be sent for post production treatment to be released on the 22th of April 2020 as a film or pieces of creative art to coincide with the Stephen Lawrence Day.
