Fashioning a City

Highfields

One of the city’s most multicultural areas, Highfields has a strong sense of community and contains numerous places of worship including Melbourne Hall church, Highfield Street Synagogue and Leicester Central Mosque.

We looked for people aged 14-25 that where living in the Highfields area to take part in the free Summer performance project that ran from Mon 13 Aug- Fri 17 Aug.

Sessions for the Highfields group took place at the African Caribbean Centre on Maidstone Road, with artists Lorrine Douglas, Boston ‘the Orator’ Williams and heritage expert Tara Monroe.
