BHA for Equality and Contact in Manchester have been funded by Public Health England to create a new play exploring the complex realities surrounding HIV-related stigma within BME communities. I am because we are will tour across seven Greater Manchester boroughs and aims to reach audiences who may not respond to conventional methods of addressing stigma and HIV prevention.
We are looking for venues to host the play for one-off performances from 8th – 21st October, and to invite the groups and communities you work with to see it. All you need is a space for the performance, be it large or small – we will bring the cast, technical equipment and deliver the show (as well as post-show discussions if you would like them). The performance will last approximately one hour.
If you would be interested in hosting I am because we are, email Contact’s Health and Science Producer Chloe Courtney to find out more on [email protected]. Examples of venues we are already working with include BME community centres, churches, community arts venues and support centres for asylum seekers and refugees. We would love to hear from you!
