Uproot Connect is a free 8-week online programme that aims to support Black theatre-makers who are at risk of leaving the industry.
Connect offers training in marketing, fundraising and alternative paths such as film and audio drama to 10 early-career artists. It will also offer them the opportunity to connect with industry leaders and build their network. This year’s mentors will be Abigail Sewell and Tobi Kyeremateng FRSA. Alongside the programme, participants will receive 1-1 wellbeing coaching from Natasha Brown.
By the end of the programme, they will have formed a toolkit to ensure their future employability amidst the current uncertainty of our industry.
Sessions take place at 6:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9th February - 1st April 2021.
