Kali Symposium

S Y M P O S I U M

To mark 30 years of championing South Asian women writers across the British theatre landscape, we held a symposium on 24 June to explore key issues facing women writers of South Asian descent.

What issues did we face 30 years ago?  What has changed?  Has enough changed? What are the current issues we must contend with?  

Watch the key sessions here

100 delegates and speakers took part including local writers and representatives from Freedom Studios Bradford, Hampstead Theatre London, Leeds Playhouse, Leicester Curve, Oldham Coliseum, Pleasance London, Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, Royal Exchange Manchester and Tara Arts.
