Situation

As the wealth gap continues to grow between the UK and our neighbours across the seas, Hoipolloi's re-newed mission over the last three years is to create work which transports UK and European audiences into the stories of those less fortunate. GANDHI & ME will continue on this journey after the success of The Duke, raising £35K and UK wide awareness for the refugee crisis and ME & ROBIN HOOD on the spotlight to the suffering of street children. This show will explore peace and activism.

Solution

In creating this new show, Shon Dale Jones will bring the spotlight to those less fortunate in a cost effective and impactful way. Working within an incredibly strong network, Hoipolloi brings donation and awareness to UK audiences in a grassroots and emotive way. Galvanising support from the Arts community, this show hopes to encourage audiences to actively engage with ways to peacefully change the status quo.
