Healthy Communities, Sustainable Places

Some of you may remember that Kilter was part of the launch of the Marmot Report. It is a ground breaking piece of work that addresses the health inequalities present in our society and suggested ways in which we could make access to healthy lives more equal. We helped translate some of the core issues and messages to the launch delegates through our unique Kilter Corporate theatre style – you can see more here.

Well, over a year later, and we’re back in the Healthy Communities world. Arts & Health South West and Willis Newson asked us to come and speak at the Healthy Communities, Healthy Places conference. The conference was designed to discuss how arts organisations can contribute to making communities, places and people more healthy and resilient.

It was a great day. Delegates were treated to inspiring talks from Sustrans, Grizedale Arts, East Feast and many more. All of which we strongly recommend you take a look at.

We were invited to talk about Roots and Roots Replanted and our approach to making theatre that reflects the community we’re working with and engages them in the themes of our work which often result in healthy lifestyle choices. We showed our new film and talked a lot about the power of the physical experience in helping inspire people to take action. Kilter’s work is never preachy, but it’s hands on, direct and intimate style really connects with people and creates a powerful bond between the performer and the audience.

We also asked Peter Local, Local DJ and memorable character from Roots Replanted, to come along to the conference and interview the delegates. He wanted to know who was there, what they expected and how they were benefiting. Here’a a little podcast of his day out in Dorset.
