Are you an artist looking for ways to GROW your artform?
We are excited to announce a FREE programme of creative activity as part of TALAWA MAKE!
A call for EMERGING Black playwrights, actors, theatre makers, directors, dancers, artists and photographers across London to GROW their craft with TALAWA and Camden People’s Theatre.
These workshops are an opportunity to explore experimental and contemporary theatre making techniques with some of the leading artists in the field. An opportunity for emerging Black artists who have never worked with Talawa to meet, to be creative and grow their craft.
Please note, these workshops take place in our basement space which is regrettably not wheelchair accessible.
