Description

Fio invites you to the National Assembly of Wales for a Race Equality event:

‘How do we deal with the white man?’

Camae - The Mountaintop

Location: National Assembly of Wales

Date: Monday 2nd October

Time: 12:30 - 16:00


To kick off our tour of The Mountaintop across Wales and to celebrate Black History Month, Fio are hosting a special event at the Senedd. We are bringing people together to be a voice, to have conversations, and to continue to break down the barriers that are unfortunately still very prevalent in Wales.


Fio believes that everyone has a story to tell and we want to bring people together to listen and respond. Fio believes it is important to have a discussion about race in a building which is majority white. We want to promote and celebrate the diversity of Wales and put all voices on the national agenda.


Hosted by Isaiah Hull who has performed with Lemn Sissay and Skepta as well as appearing @ Radio 1’s Big Weekend and TedXManchester. Joined by Special Guests, a host of other powerful music, spoken word and open discussions. The creative team of The Mountaintop will also share their experience and talk about the exciting upcoming tour.


Come and have honest and frank discussions about race within Wales with key decision makers, organisations and individuals who are responsible for change.


Join us on Monday 2nd of October at the National Assembly for Wales Senedd from 12:30pm - 4:00pm and be part of the change that needs to happen now!

This event is RSVP only, so to attend, please email Danny@wearefio.co.uk or register here on Eventbrite.


‘The Mountaintop reminds us that although it may be more than 40 years since Luther King was assassinated, the fear, ugliness, the sheer wilful ignorance and blindness of the human species is as powerful as ever’

Organiser Fio

Organiser of Race Awareness Event

Our vision is a world where everyone has a voice to tell their story. We focus on those who are currently under-represented or misrepresented in society. Our medium is theatre because we believe that it is one of the most enduringly powerful ways to tell stories.

 

We see a time when everyone can access theatre, and a world where diversity is the norm, where discrimination is non-existent and where all voices can be heard. As such, we are part of a larger humanitarian cause fighting for the rights and civil liberties of all people regardless of background, characteristics or personal circumstance.

 

Our mission is to tell stories that are or would otherwise go untold or unheard. We do this through theatre. We challenge the arts sector in Wales and beyond to embrace diversity and we export our ideas and work across the UK and the rest of the world. We aim to lead the way in presenting theatre that brings about positive change at a local, national and international level.
