the Aldgate Project
The Aldgate project was an eighteen month programme of events, workshops, and research that culminated in the writing of The Secret of Happiness, ultimate performances and an exhibition in and around Aldgate Summer Festival in June 2018 that celebrated the opening of Aldgate Square. The project also established the Aldgate Community Events, (ACE) a voluntary community organisation that is now managing future cultural events on the borders of The City of London. Claque Theatre, ACE, London Corporation and the wider community worked collaboratively on this Heritage Project based on the principles of a community play.
The Heritage Project
This Heritage project, based in Aldgate and the City of London is on of Claque's Empty Gallery programmes. It is made up of three strands : Aldgate in Camera - an outdoor tour of Victorian photographs mounted on sites close to the point of view of the photographer; Aldgate in Conversation - a short documentary and audio recorded and filmed interviews and conversations with Aldgate residents; and Exhibitions in a Suitcase - personalised exhibitions of people's lives in suitcases. You can find out more about this inspiring project on Claque's Empty Gallery website or the Aldgate Community Events Website. Click Below
