Charity information

Talawa Theatre Company

Founded in 1986, Talawa is Britain’s leading Black-led Theatre Company. We give voice to the Black British experience and we nurture, develop and support talent. We cultivate diverse audiences for theatre and also audiences for Black work. This enriches the whole of theatre, making it more relevant and representative of modern Britain.

We believe that theatre should not be restricted by the confines of the stage. We run a programme of educational and outreach activities aimed to include disadvantaged communities and schools in theatre in a manner which would not be possible otherwise. Our work assists young people self-esteem, confidence and interpersonal and intercultural awareness.

Talawa is a registered charity based in Hackney but works across London and the UK.
