The People Speak
The People Speak is a multi skilled arts group that develops platforms to bring people together to work creatively in an openended and entertaining way, creating a shared public space. We design live and online events and processes in which people are encouraged to express themselves, share ideas, and push the limits of their imagination.
The People Speak create projects that give people an excuse to enjoy speaking to each other. The formats look familiar at first: a chat show , a game show or even a soccer kick-about, but once people are involved, there’s no limit to where they can take each other. No instruction manual is required, and we like to have as much fun and get just as involved as everyone else.
All our techniques and technologies available for events, festivals, local broadcast or focus groups, training and education events. We work with all kinds of organisations with a remit to listen to people, recently including NESTA, Futerra, The Prince’s Trust, Islington, Southwark, Camden, Hackney and Sutton Councils, The Tate and the South London Gallery, to name a few. We are always interested in the challenge of adapting and developing The People Speak projects for new situations.
