We have started the devising process for our upcoming digital theatre piece The Legend of the Mernix, and would like to weave in real moments of hope that people have encountered.

Where have you found hope in your communities, neighbourhoods, and families?

Is there someone who is a hero in your life? Someone who is there for you? Who picks you up and bigs you up?

Are there organisations that go above and beyond?

Has a smile from a stranger made your day?

You might have a story about ongoing support or a description of a moment of hope – long or short, we would love to know.

If you have a story or you would like to know more, please email abi@collective-encounters.org.uk
