Comments Off on Theatre of the Global Majority

Theatre of the Global Majority is a free fortnightly program for people aged 18+ from non-white culturally diverse backgrounds. Led by ActNow Associate Director Yasmin Gurreeboo, alongside local artists Valerie Berry and Mahira Hasanović, Theatre of the Global Majority recognises non-white people make up the biggest population of people in the world – and the Australian arts scene needs to hold up their voices.

Theatre of the Global Majority focuses on crafting a fertile, exciting, and supportive environment for artists to make work and develop skills. ActNow invites culturally diverse artists from all creative backgrounds – and from aspiring to professional – to join us on this program to lead the cultural revolution.

Three women of different cultural origins smile and laugh together on the street. The day is grey and so are their outfits, but their faces are not.
