OPT and The Portrait of a Nation project
In 2008, OPT worked with the Pegasus Youth Theatre and Oxfordshire Youth Activities Partnership on the UK-wide Portrait of a Nation project, in which young people explored their roots and shared their views on their cities. Oxford’s Car to Spire explored how the car industry shaped the city and the stories of the people who worked there. Performed in the BMW car plant, with not a dry eye in the place. The students were delighted when they had the chance to travel to Liverpool as part of the European City of Culture Programme.
