Conservation Conversations/ Chalk Land 2023- 25
Inroads Productions are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding to work in partnership with Brighton University, the South Downs National Park and East Sussex County Council.
This is the first stage in our ambitious three year project, Chalk Land, a series of events taking audiences on a journey exploring and celebrating the unique eco-system of our chalk grassland landscape across rural and urban settings.
Projects include At the Edge, celebrating the chalk downland of Newhaven, Summer 2023; and Digging Down, about allotments and growing food, in and around Lewes, 2023/24.
This University of Brighton project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI); and East Sussex County Council Public Health.
Inroads is a writer-led company, formed by Sara Clifford, and based near Brighton, UK.
Since 2012, we have been collaborating with local artists and communities, to create site specific theatre, inspired and informed by stories from the local community, and particularly working class histories, scripted by Sara and incorporating large scale community ensemble casts, live music, dance and song.
