The Mandela Project

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.The Mandela Project…What Do You Believe In? was Tangle’s new Discovery Project, touring South West England in autumn - winter 2014.  The project invited people of all ages to take part in drama, spoken word, music and writing workshops led by our practitioners from Tangle Company, during which they created responses to Nelson Mandela’s vision for change, showcased in design and as an interactive website and e-book which is being shared across the region and beyond.
