Event description
Building theatres of welcome: exploring how theatres can be spaces of welcome for refugees and asylum seekers in London.

About this Event

This event is a chance for theatres and non-profit organisations supporting refugees and asylum seekers in London to come together to discuss how we can build on the work already being done to create theatres of welcome.

We will hear from theatres who have offered space, tickets, opportunities and more, as well as the organisations and individuals who have benefitted. Panelists will include Phosphoros Theatre, Good Chance, Young Vic Taking Part and people with lived experience of seeking asylum in the UK. Further panelists to be announced.

There will then be time to explore how we might strengthen and expand such partnerships across the sector.

Please note: if you received an email with incorrect panelist details, it is Phosphoros Theatre, as detailed above, that will be joining us for the event.

Organisers

Building Theatres of Welcome is being hosted by the National Theatre and organised by Routes, a non-profit supporting women with experience of the asylum system in the UK, through theatre and mentoring programmes. Since 2017 we have been supported by National Theatre, Young Vic Theatre, the Old Vic, Open Air Theatre and Shakespeare's Globe, through offers of rehearsal space, free tickets and more. We are interested in how we can support theatres to do more of this work.

Supported by Counterpoints Arts.
