‘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'll be bringing weekly theatre arts to disabled participants from the Bangladeshi communities in Tower Hamlets.

We've just finished the first year of the three-year Ghyama Arts partnership. While this Autumn’s workshops took place online, we look forward to meeting the participants again in person as soon as possible. Watch the film celebrating what we've been doing in the first term.

Also involved in Ghyama Arts! are Chocolate Films and circus artists trained at the National Centre for Circus Arts

The project is funded by the City Bridge Trust.
