Together Productions brings together people who may never otherwise meet to connect, collaborate and create. We use music and the arts as a catalyst to break down barriers, reduce isolation and enhance well-being. We produce high quality artistic work that is grown through creative collaboration, participation and experimentation.
Our work includes those who are marginalised or excluded, such as displaced people and those seeking sanctuary, people facing mental health challenges, the elderly, the financially disadvantaged and socially excluded.
We know that choirs are an incredible way to build community, improve mental health and build empathy and therefore choral singing is a big part of our work.
We run a number of Thurrock-specific projects, including our new programme Sharing Our Lives, which has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Sharing Our Lives will involve local people alongside others from across the UK and around the globe in a shared exploration of Thurrock’s migration history.
The stories collected will be showcased in a series of newly composed songs, an exhibition and a series of films at community events next June to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Empire Windrush arriving in Tilbury.
Do you have stories to share? Or are you interested in joining the project as one of our Heritage Champions? Please get in touch.
