MAKE: Talawa x Graeae Collective 2019

Calling all BAME D/deaf and/or disabled artists interested in growing their skills and collaborating with peers.

Talawa and Graeae are offering a fresh opportunity for BAME D/deaf and/or disabled artists to join this year’s collective.


Whether you're a playwright, actor, theatre maker, director, dancer, artist, live artist or a designer … Talawa and Graeae want to hear from you!

Last year we ran a series of workshops inviting BAME D/deaf and/or disabled artists to share, grow and develop their art form. This year you, the artist, will shape the bespoke programme.


This is a great way to meet, play and work with other artists!


There will be a series of 6 sessions across April and May between 10.30am and 4pm. The first two Saturdays will act as tasters and in the following four sessions we would expect artists to attend each session.


Taster Sessions
Saturday 6th April 
Saturday 13th April


Talawa Graeae Collective Sessions
Saturday 20th April
Saturday 27th April 
Saturday 4th May
Saturday 11th May

All workshops will be taking place at Graeae, 138 Kingsland Rd, London E2 8DY (unless stated otherwise).


To sign up for any of the above activities please call 020 7017 8983 or email to register your interest.


We endeavour to support as many artists as possible on a case by case basis. The building is fully accessible and we will provide BSL interpreters and access support workers across all stages of the programme as appropriate. We are also offering travel bursaries to those who have travel restrictions.


Access Audit Forms will be sent following sign up to collect details of access requirements. Please let us know what support you will need in the sessions.  


These workshops are designed for BAME D/deaf and/or disabled artists who are passionate about a career in the theatre industry.


This information is available in alternative formats. Please email or call 020 7017 8983 to request.


We look forward to hearing from you!
