The Hidden Spire Creative Collective.png

In September 2020 we invited people from across Oxford to join our Creative Collective and show us Oxford through their eyes. We sent those that signed up 3 prompts based around the theme ‘hidden Oxford’. They were invited to respond to each prompt on 1 side of A4 with writing, a drawing, or a photograph.   

 

In early 2021 we began the writing process, inviting the Collective to respond to a series of prompts to help us build the world of a brand new piece of theatre: The Drifting. The writing will be woven into a play by writer Rowan Padmore, and the play will premiere at the Old Fire Station in October 2021.

See below for different responses the prompts, and blogs from participants.
