Express and Explore with Emerge

Today I had a fascinating meeting with Donna, Eddie and Val from a local arts group called Emerge. Emerge works since 2001 and

has cultivated a platform for community’s participation in local projects and events. Our approach combines, arts & the environment in fun, informative and engaging ways’

When we shared our experience I felt that it ‘clicked’ and Emerge and Transition Town Westcliff have a future working together. Their experience of working with the community allowing diverse people to find their strengths and voices is something we greatly value here at TTW and I’m sure we can support each other in the work we do.

Below you’ll find a description of who they are and what they do.

Emerge works across  community’s and involves them in the creation of community arts performance projects. Performances to date have taken place as studio installations, in theater’s and in outdoor spaces.  Performances include , professional artists, movement performers, musicians, singers, actors, film makers, writers, choreographers, producers and directors.

Emerge believes a sharing/performance should be purposeful, and likes the creations it produces to utilize the art of storytelling through multimedia arts, as a vehicle for imagination and exploration to reflect social and cultural issues.

Emerge has cultivated a platform for community’s participation in local projects and events. Our approach combines, arts & the environment in fun, informative and engaging ways.  We recently staged ‘The journey into Natures Hand’ an interactive story that touched on social/cultural and environmental issues and hope! The story focused on positive human qualities we all possess and what together ‘we can do! ‘ Honoring our commitment to reducing our environmental impact, the community sharing/performance  took place in a local place of natural beauty instead of theatre . We chose Belfairs Nature reserve and Woodland,  ticket sales donated to Fair Havens Hospice.
