Calling all creatives!
The Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre’s campaign is calling on creative industry professionals to lend their support.
When we worked to publicise the crowdfund earlier in the year, the Friends were fortunate enough to receive the backing of Simon Callow CBE, Catherine Russell, Lolita Chakrabarti, Lucie Shorthouse, Samira Ahmed, Sir Mark Rylance and Baroness Floella Benjamin DBE, DL. As we looked to reach out to others, we were amazed to find such strong past and present local creative industry connections, both in front of and behind the scenes. This led us to put together our Vision Statement to send out to creative industry professionals, mostly, but not all, with Streatham or South London connections, who would want to see our wonderful ‘Sleeping Beauty’ of a theatre restored as a vibrant creative hub for the wider community.
We’re launching our list of individual creative industry supporters on the 91st birthday of Streatham Hill Theatre on the 20th November 2020. In the meantime, we’re contacting creative industry companies and showing that they support the campaign by adding their logos here at our new website. This is particularly important, as over the coming weeks, FEI, the consultants who won the tender for the viability study and economic impact assessment, will be wanting to look into any opportunities for collaboration as part of their studies.
We’d very much like to encourage any creative professionals or companies to email firstname.lastname@example.org to be included, and for those on social media to help us spread the word about the Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre’s ongoing campaign!
