Artistic Directors Retreat
We are thrilled to announce that the long awaited Artistic Directors Retreat is taking place in April as part of our commitment to the Strategic Alliance for Black Dance that is focusing on Leadership and Talent Development this year.
The Retreat offers three days of intensive activities with an opportunity to take time out in beautiful surroundings and regenerate, so the delegates are ready to take on new challenges in the ever changing arts environment.
The programme will be led by the charismatic acclaimed Theatre Director, Kwame Kwei-Armah, who is currently based in the USA as Director of Centerstage Theatre, Baltimore. Kwame was named the Chancellor of the University of the Arts London and in 2012 received an OBE for services to theatre. As a TV Actor, Kwame was introduced to UK households in 1999 as paramedic Finlay Newton on the BBC hospital drama Casualty and Comic Relief’s Celebrity Fame Academyin 2003.
