NBA have recently been working with play-wright Mufaro Makubika collecting information on the creation of the St Ann’s estate in the decade 1966- 1976 for his latest project Common Land.
We are looking for contributions in the form of documents, oral and written testimony, photographs that relate to the specifed date which will assist Mufaro in writing a play.
NBA have organized 9 sharing session in and around ST Anns where people can volunteer their time to share their experiences. There have been 5 session thus far where we have had the opportunity to connect with numerous people and hear some intriguing stories.
