Moving Roots Touring Network
We are very excited to announce that Medway’s Lyrici Arts is one of five nationwide partners on Battersea Arts Centre’s Moving Roots Touring Network.
Project led by Battersea Arts Centre, Moving Roots will take place over three years, working with producers in Wigan, Peterborough, Medway, Blackburn and East Cardiff, to deliver co-created projects to generate positive social change in communities. The three co-created projects will have touring and live performance at their heart and will be a vehicle for local people to engage and create within their communities.
Lyrici Arts previously ran Paint The Town Festival for Medway from 2016- 2019 as part of Battersea Arts Centre’s ‘Collaborative Touring Network.’ In partnership with nine regional partners the project reached audiences of 50,000 people, many of whom were new to the arts.
