TYRCK has now received funding that allows us to lobby and create a series of works and seminars to develop ideas for the future and part of that is to take a short intensive trip to London to meet fellow Black artists, Black theatre organisations, national theatre institutions and funders, see Black theatre and allow a new space to reflect on where we go in the future.
Approx. 10 of us – from theatre producers, film makers, opera singers, actors are coming over on 1st – 4th June 2012. We have organised several strategic meetings. Together with Natasha Graham who has also visited Sweden as part of TYRCK seminars here in Stockholm. I was wondering if you would be interested to meet us – as a small creative representation of Black British artist/practitioners and supporters – an artist round table.
To inspire, challenge and support each-other, and gain new insights and knowledge and new contacts.
1. Who are we and why do we do what we do?
2. What are the challenges of being a Black artists/ practitioners in our respective countries?
3. What are we doing artistically and strategically to deal with these issues.
We are looking to meet between 3pm – 6pm on Saturday June 2nd 2012. Venue will be confirmed- likely to be Young Vic, Waterloo.
Hope you can make it! (Snacks provided)
Please respond to Natasha Graham – on Natasha@facefront.org or call 07957163004 by 28th May 2012.
Also let us know if there are other artists/practitioners you think would be worth inviting.
