Talawa Theatre Company and Nottingham Playhouse Presents: ESCALATE

Friday 10th August 2018

ESCALATE is a six-week development programme for Black creatives in the East Midlands led by Nottingham artists Rachael Young and Mia Johnson.

Starting in September and running through to October, ESCALATE offers an opportunity to build a creative toolkit through exploring the kind of work you want to make and/or re-imagine the work you’re already making.

Throughout the six weeks we will collaborate, we will share knowledge, we will discuss, we will make and share work. Come to meet, play and explore!
