Black History Month Events (2014-present)

White Horse Road
Age range: 13+

As part of Black History Month in 2014, 2015 and 2017 Half Moon profiled performances for teenage and young adult audiences – FREE (2014), Map of Me (2015-2016) and What Once Was Ours (2017) – offering a complementary day of free creative activities for young people around the performances on Saturdays.

The days explored: what you see when you look at someone you know nothing about and how first reactions can often be misleading; issues of forced migration and violence against women and girls; and the migration of unaccompanied minors.

Participants took into themselves, realise their opinions, and open up awareness of the themes of the play.

Working within the framework of Black History Month offered a platform on which to profile the work made by Half Moon which speaks to a broad and diverse audience and celebrates the stories which need to be told by and for communities which often feel under represented in the arts, or marginalised in wider society.

The events were all supported by the Tower Hamlets Events Fund.
