A three day Challenge with makeAMPLIFY, Prime Skatepark and Barbican.

Challenge Accepted is a chance to re-imagine a Prime Skatepark using movement, projection, lighting and sound. The result will be a multi media installation and live performance and we want to make it with you. makeAMPLIFY are looking for local creatives and enthusiastic first timers to create something new, and unexpected, together.

We will be working indoors and outdoors, weird and long hours, and try things we’ve never done, with people we’ve never met and all in about 72 hours. We expect it to be as bonkers and satisfying as it is exhausting! Enthusiasm, open mindedness and teamwork counts more than skills and experience, and we are really interested to work with as wide a range of people as possible. Check out makeAMPLIFY talking about the project here

If you’d like to be involved with this Challenge please email you full name, date of birth, postcode and the sorts of things you’re interested in to rebels@barbicantheatre.co.uk

Our monthly evening of laid back live acoustic music, spoken word and dance.
