ABOUT BLACKSTAGE UK
BlackStage UK is a documentary style web series created and produced by Gabrielle Brooks.
It is a cathartic sharing of accounts for the black community that allows space for healing but also acts as a tool and source for anti-racist learning for the Arts community and beyond.
Born from an idea she had in 2018, Gabrielle Brooks (Actor and Creative Producer) started BlackStage UK in 2020. Provoked by the response of the Arts industry after the tragic and horrific events of the summer that led to the deaths of George Floyd, Armaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
What are issues and solutions that exist beyond diversity initiatives and quotas? How can we secure long lasting change and understand as black communities the power we have to incite change for ourselves?
Is the ideology of colourism an issue in the Arts Community and in the UK?
