NDT Community Partners
In 2014 New Diorama took our relationship with four local groups to the next level and named them as the first NDT Community Partners.
We have worked with these four exceptional organisations over the last few years and, by becoming named partners, we are publicly committing to our continuing relationship. These four groups represent the breadth of work supported in our local community and the cross-section of residents that direct benefit from New Diorama's Community Programme.
Our first 2014/15 NDT Community Partners are:
Fitzrovia Youth In Action – FYA and New Diorama began an exciting partnership this year in order to provide young people in the Fitzrovia area with a space to perform, workshop and showcase their creative work.
In their own words, FYA "support local disadvantaged young people in developing projects which address the issues they care about, such as community cohesion, healthy living, conflict, drugs, and alcohol."
Third Age Project – TAP have been working with New Diorama since we first opened, delivering activities for West Euston residents over 65. New Diorama have provided the space and time to present an annual Pantomime, performances for International Older People's Day and other events.
Third Age Project is a company reaching out to an older generation in our community who find themselves alone, offering creative opportunities to bring people together.
True Heart Theatre – Situated only a stones-throw from China Town and with West Euston and Camden being home to a thriving Asian population (22% of our local community is made up of people from Asian backgrounds), New Diorama actively secured a longstanding and close relationship with True Heart Theatre. Since 2006 True Heart have been creating a platform for British Chinese and East-Asian faces & voices to be seen & heard through work in mainstream scripted productions and in applied theatre contexts.
Hosting free community playback theatre performances and bi-lingual plays, New Diorama's Artistic and Executive Director is currently Chair of the Trustees of True Heart Theatre.
West Euston Partnership - The first community partnership ever made by New Diorama, WEP was was set up by local people in 1992 to help make the area a better place to live and work.
Two of New Diorama Theatre's Trustees are also on board of West Euston Partnership and there is a strong and active dialogue between the two organsations.
We are always looking for new and valuable ways to work with our local community, if you have any suggestions or would like to talk to us about the work we do please get in touch.
