An exciting funding boost has been announced for the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama’s LGBT initiative.
Thanks to the Big Lottery Fund’s (BLF) Reaching Communities (RC) program, a sum of almost £95,000 has been awarded to the conservatoire’s initiative. RCSSD’s on-going project seeks to explore and expose the issues and problems faced by LGBT people, and to hear their stories. Through conversations and workshops with LGBT people of all ages, Central School seeks to allow the marginalised group to share and explore their experiences through the healing process of performance. Eight workshops will be held throughout the year to run this initiative.
Central is known for its outstanding research in theatrical fields. The conservatoire has a wide range of research projects that span across genres of theatre and performance, constantly exploring new ways to do drama, as well as new ways to use it.
