As the world locked down and the Live Arts & Culture industry in the UK came to a grinding halt, LUMA Creations as many other creative organisations, took the leap onto online content.
LUMA Creations’ team has been developing a series of online projects in collaboration with the likes of the University of Liverpool, Culture Liverpool, Liverpool Central Library, COoL (Creative Organisations of Liverpool) of which we are members; and arts organisations and artists from across the UK and internationally.
We have created a series of performances, programmes, documentaries, shorts and online interviews as online content including an ambitious festival, Feria Latina 2020 which so us create a week long programme of online content where we produced 40 digital programmes.
We took our Little Ears puppet theatre show online and created a Short Film called “Journey to the Underworld”. based on a poem by Francisco Carrasco, as part of our Black History month offer and we created a series of online monologues from the book Small Island by Andrea Levy, monologues were edited by Maya Mitter. We created a series of commissions inviting artists based throughout the UK and internationally and interviewed South African, Colombian, Chilean, Zimbabwen and UK artists and cultural activists.
You can see all this work in our YouTube playlist: #BlackHistoryMonth 2020
