Poplar Union joins forces with Finborough Theatre in west London in a cross-London digital festival celebrating the creativity of both communities in response to the historical milestone of the Poplar Rates Rebellion of 1921.
We’re inviting all residents of the Boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Kensington & Chelsea to submit a proposal outlining their creative response to the events of this time to be part of Poplarism!, a digital festival taking place in May this year.
The winning submissions will be streamed online – submissions from Tower Hamlets will be streamed on Finborough Theatre’s YouTube/digital channels, and submissions from Kensington and Chelsea will be streamed on Poplar Union’s YouTube/digital channels. There will also be Q&A sessions online every day during the festival with the artists involved.
Deadline: 1 March 2021
