MAKE: a brand new community of Black artists

  • Talawa is building a pathway for Black artists to progress through the theatre industry, offering key support at different stages of their careers

  • We are creating 250 new opportunities for Black artists every year, across four stages: ENGAGE, GROW, COLLABORATE and SUSTAIN.

    See how you can get involved below:

  • Each year we will grow the community with a programme of activity in London and one other area of the UK.  

    Year 1 focuses on London and Manchester with our partners Camden People’s Theatre, Voyage Youth, Sustained Theatre up North and The Royal Exchange Theatre.

    MAKE is funded by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation


    MAKE Online will be an online community allowing artists to:

    • connect with each other
    • find out about activities and opportunities with Talawa and other organisations
    • post jobs and advertise events
    • post and respond to questions/requests for help
    • suggest workshops or activities to Talawa, take the lead on organising them, and build a lasting network
