South London Ambassadors

In 2014, Rosetta Life was awarded a four-year practice based research project funding by Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Charity.

Through a careful process of co-production and co-design, Rosetta Life artists worked in collaboration with South London’s stroke communities to explore whether an interdisciplinary practice that combined song making, music, dance and performance might be effective in supporting recovery among stroke communities. 

In 2018, the London Ambassadors took part in a performance tour to seven locations across the United Kingdom.

Supported by ALF – Active Londoners fund in 2019 – 2020, we were able to grow the group and deliver new performance work with participants from across London.

South London company will continue to develop work and support the scaling up of the work over the next two years  following a successful grant to The Wellcome Trust from King’s College London.
