Birth of Blackfulla Performance Alliance 2015 from Australia Council for the Arts on Vimeo.
Gavin Porter and I were lucky enough to be invited to attend the National Indigenous Theatre Forum in Brisbane recently. This three day Forum saw over 70 Indigenous theatre practitioners from around the world come together with a focus on the advancement of the Indigenous theatre sector in Australia.
NTW already had strong links with the Indigenous community in Australia, having hosted three creatives - Jacob Boehme, Kyle Morrison and Jane Harrison, through the British Council's ACCELERATE Programme. I'm confident that this trip has strengthened that bond.
A big thanks to all our friends at the Forum for your generosity, warmth and sharing your knowledge, it's had a huge impact on me.
As a group we achieved many things, one them being the creation of The Blackfulla Performance Alliance.
