Poorboy and Artlink Team Up

Poorboy and Artlink Team Up in 2015

We are delighted to announce that we will once again be working with Edinburgh based company Artlink this spring. We Poorboys are excited about the Investigate / Create Program that Artlink have initiated which allows artists to research creative ways to make art more accessible. Poorboy and Artlink collaborated in 2014 on The Angel's Share: a promenade theatre piece through Greyfriars Graveyard and Sandy Bells Pub in Edinburgh designed intentionally for blind and partially sighted audience members. The project was well received and now Poorboy are coming back to Edinburgh to research more closely into developing theatre for blind and partially sighted audiences. We have some great friends joining us and a few new faces including actors, musicians, food technologists and a product designer for what we are hoping to be a fruitful development. We are grateful for this opportunity and we'll be sure to keep you up to date with our findings.
