Invitation to "History in Action" Cork 29th November 09

Postby RSVPIreland on Mon Nov 09, 2009 1:41 pm

Red Sandstone Varied Productions

Your participation is invited; Cllr. Kieran McCarthy's ‘History in Action’ in association with RSVP (Red Sandstone Varied Productions) is an art and heritage project in Cork, which reflects artistic, educational and moral values that deserves support. The event will take place in Cork City (South-East) on Sunday 29th November, 1-5pm. This family friendly event will comprise of facets of original theatrical performance, the participation of re-enactment groups, guest speakers, and children’s activities. Participants cannot be offered fees, but will be fed and watered on the day and basic travel expenses will be covered. Admission will be charged to the public to cover administration costs and refreshments for the participants, however these ticket prices will allow for family rates, reduced group rates, and, concessions for students, the unemployed and OAP’s. A programme of events will be published to allow each group to include a brief description and contact details, and the event will be publicised with a thorough marketing campaign. Traders involved in related historical goods are also invited to set up a stand on the day, at no charge, however inclusion in the programme will be charged if advertising space is required.

The vision for this event is one of encouraging community participation, by inviting the local community to be involved in its creation, either in performance or production capacity, as well as encouraging as wide an audience as possible. With your help we would have more resources for working with the local community, as well as producing a more inspiring event; with the added benefit of building your community presence. We are living in a tough economic climate, resources have become tighter, and though we feel this in the arts sector, we are acutely aware of the effects on local community; increased family pressures, isolation and general disconnection from society. Our company, RSVP (Red Sandstone Varied Productions) strives to produce theatrical events, which can bring the community together. Our underlying philosophy is that ‘we are all connected’. We believe in core values; family, community, concern for our neighbours, kindness and compassion to all. With ‘History in Action’ we honour the past, where there is much to learn, as we help build the future; we encourage people to actively engage with life around them, as well as examining the history that brought us here. We believe that growth and transformation in society is affected positively by respecting our heritage in this way.

We would be delighted with any help, whether it be guest speakers, or re-enactments, or advice and contacts.

Director/Producer, RSVP.
