tiata fahodzi receives Arts Council England funding as a National Portfolio Organisation for 2023-26

We are delighted to share that Arts Council England have made the decision to continue to support us as a National Portfolio Organisation for another 3 years with further investment!

We want to thank Arts Council England for allowing us to continue the creative work we do for British African heritage and Black British artists, audiences, freelancers and communities. 

 

Our work continues to be important in not only the theatre that we make, but also the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion that we are all trying to achieve in the theatre industry in general. 

 

We will do all we can to lead on those values, and advocate for a more representative theatre ecology as we have done for the last 25 years.

 

We want to take this opportunity to thank our whole team including previous staff who contributed, our Board of Trustees, and supporters for helping us to shape and deliver our work. We want to thank all artists and audiences too for showing up and believing in our vision.

 

We also recognise that for others today may be a more difficult outcome, and we want to extend our support, love, and respect to those in the creative sector who have had difficult news.

 

We are here if you need us.
