“It was a day to rejoice for all theatre makers and future theatre makers... knowing a good company is supporting a sense of community within the arts. From sharing a couch with you (Natalie) and speaking with Gbolahan, to letting Danny know he was an inspiration of mine at 16 years old.”
Jenny BattParticipation Projects Manager / Watford Palace Theatre
“The range and quality of artists delivering day sessions was outstanding. The peer networking opportunities and access to established artists for practical guidance and development on offer at this day was hugely helpful and is a rare opportunity here.”

“Still buzzing from Saturday evening. I can't thank you enough for giving me the chance to speak and share.”
Aslam Percival HusainTheatremaker
“Spending the day surrounded by BAME artists, the festival felt and looked like the future of UK theatre. Incredible talks from the legends that are Danny Sapani and Bonnie Greer instilled in me a hope for the future of a diverse theatre. The workshops galvanised me to re-start my own work and to be more than just an actor, but a theatre maker.”
