Estate Of Mind

Arakan was commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) to produce a new play that was to platform their research findings about life on two of Bradford’s traditionally white estates. The result was Estate of Mind. The play featured music by Ella Spira.

Estate of Mind was performed in August 2012 at the Bingley Arts Centre and the Alhambra Studio, and later in November it was performed at venues in York and Birmingham. The aim was to explore how residents understand their communities and how they particpate in community life. Delegates then had the opportunity to ask questions to a panel made up of one of the actors (in character), researchers and residents.
