Going Home – Anti Racism

"Our team felt compelled to respond to the underbelly of racism that was revealed following the Euro’s football final in 2021."

For more information about our workshop programme

Workshop

* Going Home is a play that realistically depicts the racism and discrimination faced by people from racially minoritised backgrounds in the UK today. It is based in the 12 hours leading up to and following the 2021 Euro’s Final.

The accompanying workshop explores how to negotiate and challenge racism and is delivered with a team which includes those who have lived experience of racism as well as an ally of those who experience racism. We have partnered up with Show Racism The Red Card (SRTRC) for some delivery of the workshop.

* Going Home, written by Curtis Cole, directed by Tess Farley.
