I AM HERE is a new online project featuring trailblazing theatre makers to break down barriers between young people and theatre. This September our Young Changemakers will host four FREE online workshops led by artists who use their work to stand up and shout “I am here!”. Each weekly session will focus on a different intersection of identity: Class, Race, Sexuality and Gender, exploring representation in the arts and showing that whoever you are, theatre has a place for you.
Comedian and screenwriter Jordan Gray is the creator and co-star of Comedy Central’s “Transaction”. Outside of comedy, she is perhaps best known for being the first ever transgender contestant to appear on The Voice, reaching the semi-finals in 2016.
The sessions will take place on Zoom, and will feature a leading theatre-maker discussing their experiences in theatre, followed by a Q&A.
I AM HERE is aimed at 18-25 year olds but booking is open to all. Tickets are free, but advanced booking is essential.
Please look out for your email confirmation which will provide login details for your Zoom workshop.
I AM HERE is made possible by funding from the London Community Response Fund administered by City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder.
