Meet the people behind the project

We are a diverse collective of Northamptonshire artists (and one visitor!) who are collaborating with each other for the first time. We work as Community Liaison Officers with local groups to learn about Northamptonian experiences, and as artists to convert our findings into popular and political theatrical events.
