Introducing Global Majority Playwrights to Your Curriculum

Exciting news - we are running a free event delivered by Beyond the Canon and it's open to all teachers of Drama and Performing Arts at KS3, KS4 and KS5 and aims to help amplify marginalised voices in the arts.

The aim of the session is to discover the works of global majority playwrights in this interactive workshop and explore Beyond The Canon's Plays for Young Activists anthology, empowering participants to create safe spaces, ignite artistic activism, and engage in profound conversations about plays and social justice.

Beyond the Canon is an organisation committed to increasing the visibility and accessibility of ground-breaking yet lesser-known classics, masterpieces and gems by British and international culturally diverse playwrights. The organisation stages UK and international revivals, monologue showcases, bespoke workshops, play clubs and publications.The aims are to support, empower and inspire culturally diverse artists, and enrich the artistic industry in the UK and across the world.

The event is on 1st July 2024, 16:30- 17:30 BST
