Family Matters: Part 1

To celebrate the fact that you can now sign up for this year’s Get Creative Family Arts Festival, we’d like to share with you an example of some work that was part of last year’s festival.

Family Matters is a performance research project by Z-arts into what constitutes ‘family’ in modern society. Late last year, five different writers got up on stage as part of the Family Arts Festival to tell their own deeply personal stories. The result was a set of five Family Matters monologues. See the first of the set below:

The make-up of a family has implications on how we the arts sector communicate with that family, what arts activities we present, and how we make sure those activities are accessible. Read more about how Family Matters aims to encapsulate the diversity of the modern family here.
