Make Yourself at HOME

Make Yourself at HOME, brings together creatives of colour to talk, plan together, network, trouble shoot ideas with peers, and provide ongoing support during these difficult times. They also provide an opportunity to meet with members of the Talent Development Team at HOME.

There will also be an opportunity to attend talks and masterclasses during these sessions.

The socials are a virtual space (currently on zoom) to meet other artists of colour in an informal setting. Whatever art form you’re working in, whether you’re starting out or an old hand, this space is for you.

Join us and help shape the future!

The socials and workshops will be led by former Slate Enablers Adam Lowe and Saphena Aziz. Saphena is an Independent Producer from Liverpool and former Slate Enabler for Merseyside. Adam is a writer, publisher and producer living in Manchester, and former Slate Enabler for Greater Manchester. Both will be on hand to discuss our plans and listen to your needs as we shape future opportunities.

How it started…

Slate: Black. Arts. World. was a three-year project led by Eclipse Theatre Company that supported Black artists in the North to work regionally, nationally and internationally, building sustainable models for careers in the independent sector.

HOME was very proud to be one of the partner organisations on Eclipse’s Slate programme which supported over 2,000 Black artists, and fellow artists also marginalised for their race.

Building upon the Slate legacy we want to continue to provide opportunities to support and engage with Black artists, and fellow artists who are also marginalised for their race living and making work in the North West.

You don’t have to have been part of Slate before to come to these socials.
