We Are Holyrood: Shining a light on a Southampton community

We are excited to announce We Are Holyrood - a project spanning 2021 to celebrate the Holyrood community…

About We Are Holyrood

We Are Holyrood shines a light on the stories of the Holyrood community – unique stories about who they are and where they live. During Spring and Summer 2021, we worked with Holyrood residents of all ages to make dance, films and experiences all about the lives and experiences of the Holyrood community.

In July, we took up residence in the Holyrood estate for a week with We Are Holyrood: The Hub! We ran a range of activities including dance workshops, a FuzzyLogic live performance, arts and crafts and coffee mornings.

The We Are Holyrood film was part of the city-wide Mayflower 400 programme. The anniversary year seeks to celebrate Southampton, a city and a community, built on journeys and migration, whilst increasing participation in cultural activities. #Mayflower400sc

It is also part of a wider ZoieLogic Dance Theatre programme supported by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Here's what we've been up to in Holyrood...
