April 2022

This month Firefly celebrated the Spring forward in a truly egg-celent way! We began the month with the return of our Warehouse project, where we explored 4 different sites within Livingston and responding to these places in a performative way. It was so great to get going again with some site responsive work and we can’t wait to see where the exploration continues to go.

Our activist group ‘We Rebels’ met to plan and create their next positively activist performance which uses their original design, the conversation cart. Keep your eyes, and ears, peeled for more updates on that!

Our staff team attended several drop in sessions as part of our mental health partnership with Roots, meeting lots of young people and families and delivering taster workshops to let people know what Firefly are all about.

We started a brand new weekly group called the ‘Young Writers’ who collaborate to create exciting and original scripts and pieces of writing, and our Navigators and Company 360 groups continue to work towards their sharings in June of this year. As we move towards the end of the month, we’re beginning to put a focus on planning and preparing for our trip to NFYT 2022, where we will be performing ‘When This Is Over’ to a brand new audience. We cannot wait!
