The Public Arts at Lancaster University, Event and workshop in St Nicholas Arcades‏

Rachel Baynton from The Public Arts at Lancaster University asked whether I could display this for the attention of all those interested. Looks intriguing.

‘Last year, supported by Nuffield Theatre Lancaster, artist Rajni Shah set up in the open space between the shops of St Nicholas’ Arcades shopping centre to perform give what you can, take what you need in which they met with over fifty Lancaster residents, and shared stories, food and gifts. Rajni returns this year to run a two-day open workshop for local people, in which participants will have a chance to create short autobiographical performances.

In preparation for the open weekend workshop, Rajni will be returning to St Nicholas Arcades on the afternoon of Wednesday September 23rd and working with her collaborators to set up a space (located in the shop unit opposite Furniture Matters) for passers-by to have a cup of tea, to learn about Glorious!, the new project, and to talk through some ideas in an informal environment. This will be an opportunity for people to find out about the workshop and the ongoing project (which will lead into a performance in Lancaster featuring local people in 2011), and those who wish will be welcome to sign up for the workshop which takes place over the weekend of September 26th and 27th (11 – 4pm each day) at The Gregson Centre in Lancaster.

Further details on the project can be found by visiting:, emailing or by calling Alice or Rachel on 01524 592994, please leave your name, contact details and a line or two on why you would like to take part’.
