NASA UK’s Covid-19 Statement


Two great new initiatives from NASA UK

Walk and Talk


Artist Led Zoom Commission

Walk and TalkWhat is it?

A ‘buddy system’ to encourage people to connect and support each other in a more focused way – over the phone, 1 on 1, perhaps once a week. This is voluntary and requires you to sign up to be paired with someone. Great if you’re feeling a bit disconnected, struggling to get your tasks done or feel stuck and could use someone to report back to about your progress.

Artist Led Zoom CommissionWhat is it?

Thanks to the ACE Emergency funding grant, we are able to pay 12 NASA-UK members to lead 1 hour workshops via zoom. The fee for each facilitating artist is £100.

How to apply

Email zoom@nasauk.org with the subject “I’m interested!”

First IRL gig with a physical audience today since lockdown, when our world, like so many of us in theatre, fell apart. Was smashing. Thank you so much to all who came and all who supported us. #CLOUDSCAPES @SalisburyArts @WiltsCreative @poundarts @OutdoorArtsUK @Soniche https://t.co/bKzLOzNiuc NASAUK photo

Here's what we do down here beside the seaside in South Devon for Dawlish care homes each Friday... with local performers and our sons.

As from next week, Prom-Prom restarts seaside shows each Wednesday and Thursday on Teignmouth seafront and then on Exmouth seafront from the following week - throughout August and the first week of September.

Keeping it safe, keeping it real.
Remaining joyfully accessible.
Providing the serious art of being silly.

Your Ever-Loving,

Uncle Tacko!
