Would Like To Meet

Scottee & Friends and Cambridge Junction would like to meet the people who think theirs is the loneliest street in Cambridge. They will be asking residents about the sort of people they would like to meet, the neighbours they wish for and why they don’t currently interact.

After everything that’s happened, would you like to get to know your neighbours better? 

Over the last few months many of us have become more aware of who our neighbours are. For some it’s meant that the people who live next door have been on hand to deliver food and provide much needed care and support. For others those awkward nods as we pass each other have become a smile and a ‘Hello’ on a Thursday evening as we clap for key workers.

Lock down has brought people together but some of us still have no idea who our neighbours are. So we were wondering after everything that’s happened, would you like to get to know your neighbours better?

Scottee & Friends are looking for one street in Cambridge who would like to get to know each other better. WLTM is an installation that aims to get people talking. If you want to know a little bit more about the project, have a listen to these podcasts from ‘Would Like To Meet’ in Leeds back in 2018.

Scottee is an artist and writer, working across theatre, fine art and installation with no formal education. In 2010, as an emerging artist he won the title of Time Out Performer of the Year, and since then has been creating provocative work for audiences across UK, Europe, Australia, Japan and the US. Scottee is not easily definable: his work is brash, political and will often leave you a bit annoyed or overwhelmed, but never impartial.
