Tara Arts will continue the activism of our history.

We will continue to provide a platform for theatre makers of colour.

We will continue to strive to end racism in our industry and our society.


This week we want to share with you materials that our team, our board and our community of artists have found to be useful to educate ourselves more on the Black Lives Matter movement.

If there is anything that you would like to contribute or share please get in touch with us through our social media or on [email protected]
