We are excited to announce that we will be working at Oasis Community Housing in Gateshead for seven weeks.
Streetwise Opera will deliver free singing and creative workshops to clients of Oasis. The sessions will be held every Tuesday, from 18 February, between 11:45am and 12:45pm at Basis Gateshead, Aquila House on Warwick Street.
The group will be exploring “comic opera”, inspired by Told by An Idiot’s production of The Strange Tale of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel, which is touring the UK and will be performed from 11 to 15 February at Northern Stage in Newcastle.
After these seven weeks, clients of Oasis may join Streetwise Opera’s free weekly workshops at Sage Gateshead.
Oasis Community Housing is a national charity that exists to reignite a hope and a future for everyone facing homelessness. It provides housing, support and other specialised services to individuals, from a place of emergency to independence. This support aims to develop life skills that will enable people to live successful independent lives.
