Crows on the Wire – Cultural Diplomacy through the Arts: Drama workshop masterclass on issue-based facilitation using digital and audio-visual resources
Produced by the Verbal Arts Centre ‘Crows on the Wire’ is a cultural project which dramatises the transition of the RUC to the PSNI as a result of the Good Friday Agreement from the perspective of those most directly impacted, the rank and file officer. The original script was commissioned from writer Jonathan Burgess and the performance, accompanied by public discussions and community drama engagement, toured NI in November 2013. Aimed at young people, the COTW App was produced in 2014, and in 2015 the focus is on engaging with cross-border and rural communities through discussion, drama and audio-visual resources.
