After much deliberation, One Tribe, the unique creative collaboration of the Dean Crowe Theatre, St Hilda’s and RehabCare adult day services, have announced that they will be hosting a live production this calendar year.
In a statement released this week, One Tribe, noted its intention to expand the their creative nous within the local community.
“One Tribe 2020 intends to expand into the community beyond Athlone. We face considerable challenges to ensure that the project can continue while respecting COVID-19 restrictions. Our goal is to deliver a creative experience for all of the One Tribe participants.
“We hope to create regional One Tribe creative hubs in Athlone, Ferbane, Ballymahon and Moate. Working in smaller groups and closer to home, participants can maintain a social distance and still communicate and connect with each other in a creative environment.
“The Dean Crowe Theatre, St. Hilda’s and Rehab Care, Athlone are seeking local, qualified, experienced arts professionals in any discipline who have experience in facilitating workshops and working with people with intellectual disabilities to lead the next phase of our ‘One Tribe’ Arts Ability Project.
“If you are an actor, writer, poet, painter, mosaic artist, sculptor, drama teacher, choreographer, dancer, textile artist or visual artist in any form living close to Athlone, Ferbane, Moate or Ballymahon, we would like to hear from youu.”
