South West's Partnership for Multi Racial Theatre

The South West’s partnership for multi-racial theatre is a consortium of arts organisations from across Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon, set up by Tangle in 2012. The partnership exists to develop and progress opportunities for multi-racial arts activity across South West England, and through theatre making, to open up opportunities for artists from a wide range of global heritages to have a stronger and more consistent presence in the region.

Conceived as a direct result of EVERYTHING MATTERS, Tangle’s 2012 action research project, the partnership consists of four consortia each of which meets twice yearly. Each group is chaired by a local organisation that works closely with Tangle staff throughout the year to explore ways by which we can progress opportunities for BAME artists, and for programming more African- Caribbean and multi-racial theatre across South West England. In 2016 the consortium will expand to include arts communities in Gloucestershire and Dorset.

See the Who’s Involved tab for a full list of the partners.

The SOUTH WEST’S PARTNERSHIP consortia are Chaired by Proteus Theatre (Hampshire), Salisbury Playhouse (Wiltshire), Beaford Arts (Devon) and Take Art (Somerset). Contributing organisations are Trowbridge Arts, The Pound, Salisbury International Arts Festival, Creative Ecology Wiltshire, Salisbury Arts Centre, West Wilts Community Club, Anvil Arts, Forest Forge Theatre Company, The Nuffield Theatre, Theatre Royal Winchester, and Villages in Action
