This Black History Month we're setting out how we're going to champion artists and NYT members of Black heritage throughout the year.
Beginning in October 2021, here's what we're committing to over the next six months:
6 online workshops led by Black industry professionals for Hub & NYT members
6 Weekly Members' Meets championing work by members & recent alum of Black heritage
2 Town Hall meetings, which will be offered 4 times a year to NYT members of Black heritage
2 #MadeByMembers Open Mic nights curated by NYT Members of Black Heritage and delivered online and in person
Here's how you can get involved now:
NYT members come along to our weekly online NYT Members Meet-Ups, on Tuesday 26th we'll be joined by REP graduates Adeola Yemitan and Francesca Amewudah-Rivers to hear about their 5 star production of Antigone
Our monthly workshops kick off with Trybe House Theatre on Thursday 18th November for a workshop on Black Joy: Performance and Storytelling (Many of these events will be for all members but this workshop 'Black Joy' is for HUB & NYT Members of Black Heritage only).
Come and join us for a Q&A, as part of the Being Human Festival on 15th November about our filmed production of The Ancestors, written by Lakesha Arie-Angelo and directed by Jade Lewis, exploring the Black History of Portchester Castle.
To be the first to find out about screenings of the filmed production coming soon.
Our next Town Hall will be on Thursday 16th December 2021, more information coming soon.
