The World on the Street: Urban Games from Lancaster's Global Link

Global Link and The Dukes DT3 are looking for volunteers and participants to be part of two days of games, theatricals and creative learning, engaging people in global issues and raising awareness of the UN's 2015 Millennium Development Goals.

Bustling through streets and into wide open spaces. Searching for clues and invitations to learn more. Escape unknown pursuers and find new ways to interact and share your creativity with the people around you.

For one day, forget about your routine, pastimes and usual networks and wander into the World on the Street. Encounter lives beyond your own; run, chase, perform, and let yourself be driven by a new set of goals.

The World on the Street is a performance in two parts. Part game, part street theatre, our arenas are the parks, spaces and thoroughfares of Lancaster and Morecambe. You need bring nothing but a sense of excitement and imagination.

The project takes place throughout September and includes training and information, culminating in two street games in Lancaster and Morecambe.
Lancaster - Sat 25 Sept - Game starts at 3pm from the Friends Meeting House
Morecambe - Sat 2 Oct - Game starts at 3pm from Winter Gardens.
Registration from 2.30 p.m.

Working with DT3 at the Dukes Theatre, Global Link would especially like to encourage young people who want to help organise part of the event. This could be with music, street theatre, games, role play or something completely different, it's up to you!

They also need volunteers of all ages to help out on the day or with preparation in any way they can.
If you would like to play the game or support the event, please email play@worldonthestreet.org.uk or call 01524 36201 for more information.
