Taking place in the foyer spaces inside Nottingham Playhouse
FREE – No need to book!
Kite flying is an important part of Afghanistan culture, popularly known as the Gudiparan bazi. Kites are viewed as things of beauty and kite fights are an exhilarating sight to behold. International Artist and PhD student Rhiannon Slade will be working with 100 young people from Nottingham to document their hopes and aspirations for the future, encouraging them to design and make their very own symbol of hope in the form of a kite. These will then be displayed in the Playhouse’s foyers during the run of The Kite Runner. Working in collaboration with Gavin Rogers and Martha Glazzard from Nottingham Trent University, Slade will uncover the stories, reflections and hopes for the city of Nottingham.
