Queen’s Theatre has invited everyone in the community to create a plan for a thriving arts scene in Havering - a borough that has the lowest number of Arts Council Grants in London.

A free Satellite Devoted & Disgruntled Open Space event will be held in the foyer of Queen’s Theatre in Billet Lane on Saturday, August 11 from 5pm - 8.30pm.

Douglas Rintoul, artistic director at the theatre said: “I know that local artists are struggling to make work, that the arts are disappearing from schools and that Havering has the lowest number of Arts Council Grants for Arts applications of all the London boroughs.

“I also know that a healthy arts scene is vital to a healthy community, and now is the time to work together on this urgent issue.

“So I’m inviting all those engaged and interested in the performing arts in our area to come together to create an action plan for a thriving performing arts community in the region.”

The event offers a place open to all voice concerns, have a rant, discuss challenges, seek new connections, share experiences and listen to the conversation.

Participants set the agenda and nothing is censored.

Together, participants are encouraged to map out a rich future for the performing arts in a changing region and turn the challenges into exciting possibilities.

Devoted & Disgruntled is a national ongoing conversation about the future of theatre, by the theatre company, Improbable.

Using Open Space Technology, it provides theatre and performing arts practitioners with the space and time they need to create positive change.

D&D Satellite is free to attend, however tickets must be reserved by calling the Box Office on 01708 443333 or online at queens-theatre.co.uk as places are limited.
