A meet-up at a black-owned restaurant to socialise with Black Womxn actors outside of the audition room. To celebrate and sit amongst the Blacktresses that have paved the way for the younger generations and for the older generation to learn and be inspired by the youth.
We also use this as a time to honour our Queens and their achievements.
Our special guests include Sharon D Clarke MBE and Rakie Ayola.
Led by expert Black Womxn practitioners from the arts. These are workshops that inspire ideas through conversation and creativity. This is where we challenge our ideas, give what we can in spirit and take away something that can be used NOW in the rehearsal/audition room and life.
