Prime Cut Productions - Launch Ensemble NI

30 August 2017

About Ensemble NI
Prime Cut are excited to be launching Ensemble NI, a series of FREE taster workshops delivered to community groups across Northern Ireland, funded by the Northern Ireland Executive. Groups will take part in 4 workshops using different art forms to explore themes of identity, culture and tradition on a personal, community and national level. The Ensemble project in it’s 5 year has engaged with almost 1000 participants from a range of different generations, cultures and traditions. 

Ensemble NI is open to community group across Northern Ireland. These initial workshops will be delivered between July and September 2017.  Following these initial workshops, there will be the opportunity to participate in a longer term with a high profile showcase event being held in March 2018. No previous experience of Arts Based Projects is required. We are interested in working with groups based in hard to reach communities, and that we work with as many diverse groups as possible, ensuring that as many different voices from across Northern Ireland contribute to the project.
