What are the realities for a person of colour working in theatre? How do you pitch yourself? And what can theatre-makers of colour do to nurture the next generation of creatives?
Featuring voices from Nouveau Riche, We Rise is a new series of short films, shining a light on how to manoeuvre, cope and self-care against racism in the sector.
They will share their experiences of how people of colour can succeed in the industry, tips and tricks on the pathways available to you, pitching new work, touring your work, and what hopes we have for the future.
Each episode will be released every Wednesday on this page, as well as Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
