Culture R&D (ArcolaLab & Bath Spa University)

Event Date: April 2019

We collaborated and were offered to play around for 5 days with Arcola Theatre’s ArcolaLab. We produced Culture, an R&D process with 30 participants, which included providing a safe space for black creatives to share intimate stories of racially charged incidents within the industry to create our production, 4.

We then took this workshop model to Bath Spa University, a predominantly white university to create an open dialogue about the training within educational institutions for black people.

We are looking forward to discovering and furthering our support for our black artists in the industry as much as we can for future interaction.
