The Lewisham Project


Over the last ten years we have built up an in depth knowledge of and deep love for the London Borough of Lewisham. We have performed in supermarkets across the borough, parks in Lee, Catford and Forest Hill, cafes in Deptford and Hither Green, Libraries in Lewisham and Downham, museums and art galleries in Forest Hill and New Cross as well as high streets throughout the borough.

Lewisham has become a glorious and important play-ground for us to experiment, create and explore in.

In collaboration with Lewisham Council we have started two initiatives to use our local knowledge and passion for the borough to support the Lewisham community.

Teatro Vivo’s unique creative approach to communicating stories and ideas is an invaluable tool to use in strengthening cohesive communities. Committed to this borough and the people in it, we want to collaborate with organisations and residents to promote shared aims, celebrate the boroughs diversity and bring people together through a communication programme that puts an artistic delivery at the heart of its approach.

The Lewisham Usherettes

These theatrical characters can be spotted on the streets of Lewisham sharing information, collecting thoughts and ideas and generating lively debate about their favourite subject – Lewisham.

Approach the Usherettes if you want to know about joining a choir, how to get involved in a community group, where your nearest cinema is or if you have a question about public services. The Lewisham Usherettes will point you in the right direction.

If you have information you’d like to share to the wider Lewisham community; perhaps you run a club or need participants for your event, get in touch we’ll do our best to help promote your work.

Lewisham Lates

These free, evening, social events will encourage the local community to come together. These bespoke events could be anything from a high quality music performance in a local launderette to a history walk around a local area ending in the pub. The aim is to bring people together whilst sharing some local Lewisham landmarks and expertise.

If you are based in Lewisham and want to share your location, expert knowledge or skills with a local crowd, get in touch.

If you want to come to one of our Lewisham events email us to get on the mailing list.
