On a cold, crisp evening on 14 December 2017, EEA and partners, East Greenwich Residents' Association (EGRA), held the first Shine A Light parade in East Greenwich where the company is based. Hundreds of local residents, including families from five local schools, and the Bollywood Brass Band took to the streets in a beautiful parade of lanterns and illuminated rickshaws. The intention was to ‘shine a light’ on socially isolated people, many of them elderly, and celebrate what can be achieved through the community coming together.
Through a successful crowdfunded campaign, raising almost £12,000, EEA was able to support this event and continue to run weekly creativePeople's Parlour sessions on Thursday mornings 10 am - 12 pm, starting again on Thursday 25 January. People over 60 are particularly welcome.
EEA has been awarded the ACE Catalyst Fund having lead a consortium of six organisations from the outdoor arts sector.
EEA is excited to present our brand new mid scale touring show funded through the ACE Strategic Touring programme.
Inspired by the wonderful world of Roald Dahl, EEA brought Eltham High Street to life with hundreds of lanterns and drumming bands.
