What's On

Take Stock Exchange: You, Me, the World & this moment

Join take stock exchange and listen to local stories and share delicious food!

Over the last few months community storytellers, take stock exchange, have been listening to conversations all over East London. In libraries, gardens, community centres and online, people have been talking and people have been sharing their stories.
We’re living through an extraordinary moment, one which people are experiencing in wildly different ways. This project is about making space to reflect on that and share our thoughts, ideas, stories and experiences with our neighbours.

take stock exchange invite you to Poplar Union to share a meal and listen to them tell some of the stories they’ve heard from the people they’ve met, with live music from long time collaborator, violinist Anna Lowenstein.

The performance is suitable for ages 12+, although younger children can attend at the discretion of parents and guardians.

This event is completely free but please do book in advance to ensure your place.

About take stock exchange

take stock exchange (Nick Cassenbaum, Olly Hawes & Anna Smith) are a London based community storytelling company. Since 2013, they’ve been making projects using storytelling and conversation to bring communities together, enabling people to increase their empathy and understanding and develop their sense of perspective and civic pride. They do this by delivering workshops and performances that stimulate local conversations and create what they call a ‘dialogue through difference’ – whatever that difference might be: age, body, economic, ethnic, political, religious or any other.

They work with communities across London, collaborating with arts organisations, housing association and community development programmes to deliver projects which enable people to explore, celebrate and question their commonalities and differences by facilitating conversation around people’s past, present and future and that of the places they live/work.

Previous partner organisations include: The Yard Theatre, Stratford Circus, Rich Mix, Culture Mile, The Barbican, Barnsbury Housing Association, Poplar HARCA, Poplar Union, artsdepot and Vision Redbridge.
