‘Ghyama’ means ‘awesome’ in Bengali, and throughout the Autumn we’re making ‘awesome arts’ with participants from the Bengali Parents and Carers Association based at St Margaret’s House in Bethnal Green.

In this project, we bring weekly theatre arts to disabled participants from the Bangladeshi communities in Tower Hamlets.

We're now in the second year of the three-year Ghyama Arts partnership. While the first year took place online, we're now working in a hybrid way with participants joining us in-person and via Zoom. Watch the film celebrating the first year.

Ghyama Arts! is co-ordinated by St Margaret's House in partnership with Bangladeshi Parents and Carers Association. Also involved are Chocolate Films and circus artists trained at the National Centre for Circus Arts

The project is funded by the City Bridge Trust.
