What is Sustained Theatre ?

Sustained Theatre is a movement working to create a new inclusive landscape for British Culture to flourish regionally, nationally and internationally.

We want to keep issues relating to Black, Asian, and minority ethnic theatre artists and practitioners alive and in the national debate. To do this, we need you. We want your voices, presenting us with new challenges in order to permanently establish our collective aspirations and standing in the arts. We need you to become part of the process, engage with us through this website – make your position heard to make a positive difference. Network and connect, research and debate: this website is just the first stage of a long-term strategy.

We are aiming to sustain an environment of progressive thinking and action that will redress the balance and shake up the national arts landscape. By providing a platform for creativity and presentation through critical debate, through saving and restoring our national archives, through developing leadership and cultivating international links, we hope to level the playing field for a sustainable future.
