Activating the Turnpike
The Turnpike is a cultural centre in Leigh, a new organisations that draws on a 50 year history of contemporary arts practice, based in an iconic 1970s brutalist building . We are working with Director Helen Stalker, the gallery team, Leigh community and artists to help shape a new direction for The Turnpike, as an artist-led testing ground – a place of healing, learning and creative exchange, that operates beyond its walls and throughout the town.
The Cap and Dove
The Cap and Dove is a new commissioned project by artist Joshua Sofaer, curated and produced by Rule of Threes with associate Debbie Chan. We were invited to support GM Arts to develop an artistic programme as a legacy from 2019’s Peterloo bi-centenary. The Cap and Dove is a tiny arts centre on wheels, and it specially created ensemble of theatre-makers and performers, will visit the 10 Greater Manchester Boroughs during Spring 2021 to explore the themes of democracy, freedom and protest with local people.
