This year, we’ve been developing KELI: an important story about how a young woman from a post-industrial, ex-mining community uses creativity to confront her own struggles. This has been inspired by our research for the BBC Radio 4 Series: Love, Spit and Valve Oil. We interviewed ex-miners who had been unfairly prosecuted for standing up for their communities, people who found a safe space through brass banding, and the support it provided them with.
Next year, we will take KELI further by turning it into a full live show — we’ll work with more young people, musicians, and creatives to provide learning, skills development, and performance opportunities. Your contribution will be vital in this process — join the band by supporting us!
