The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Utopia Theatre Creative Hub

Utopia Theatre’s Creative Hub brings together over 40 African theatre professionals to offer free online workshops and masterclasses to people of African origin.

Utopia Theatre is a resident company at Sheffield Theatres, aimed at strengthening African communities within the arts. Some of the world’s leading African artists will share their knowledge and experience in directing, playwriting, dance, acting, storytelling, movement, sound, and more as part of the Creative Hub.

Launching on 29 June and continuing till December 2020, the events in the Creative Hub are for people of African origin aged 16 and above. The programme is all about supporting the development of a sustainable talent pool, giving black artists greater visibility, and inspiring the next generation of artists – strengthening black African communities within the arts.

As Utopia Theatre’s founder and artistic director Mojisola Elufowoju says: “The Creative Hub ensures black artists continue to have income and remain visible as they continue to develop their craft and enhance the lives of the people in our community. This outlet enables people to engage with art and learn from some of the leading professionals in our industry.”
