As part of our exhibition, we are thrilled to share the fantastic outcome of the dance and movement workshops run by Reading's Reside Dance: Who We Are: Moving Stories from Oxford Road.
Reside Dance worked in partnership with No. 5 Young People to run two dance and movement workshops that gave 11 - 25 year olds an alternative way to the history and heritage of the Oxford Road. Through dance and moment, young people were invited to explore what the Oxford Road means to them and how they would like the history of the area to be celebrated. The workshops also provided an opportunity for local young people to make new friends, and discover new creative ways of improving wellbeing and mental health.
