 Rifco

Rifco are an award winning Theatre Company that develops and creates vibrant, accessible and high quality theatre which reflects and celebrates the contemporary South Asian experience.

For over a 15 years, Rifco have been pushing the boundaries and introducing a new kind of audience to the world of theatre and new work which reflects and celebrates the contemporary multicultural world we live in. Developing and creating vibrant, accessible and high quality theatre to encourage and engage new and diverse audiences.

Our success lies in knowing what our audience wants. We constantly strive to produce great and watchable art that educates without preaching. We want our audience to deal with current topics and at times taboo subjects whilst being able to laugh at the world we live in.

We focus on artistic excellence, new writing and ambitious programming. We believe in artist development; working with new writers, nurturing young artists and creating new and exciting work, involving the community every step of the way. www.rifcoarts.com

Aik Saath

The words "Aik Saath" mean "Together As One" in Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. They also embody the ethos of our charity. We believe in working together for positive social change.

Our mission is to work with people from all communities, faiths and backgrounds to promote and encourage unity and community cohesion through training, youth work, heritage projects and the arts.

In recent years we have undertaken a range of projects involving heritage and the arts. Our young volunteers used oral history to create exhibitions exploring the partition of British India into India and Pakistan and to understand the contribution of Polish aircrew to Britain during World War Two. We have furthered people’s understanding of each other via Mygration – an oral history project focussed on sharing people from different communities’ journeys to Slough. We have established a monthly spoken word event called Empoword and use art and drama in schools to convey our message. We are excited to be a part of Home, a unique opportunity to develop Slough’s creative future. www.aiksaath.com
