On Friday 12th July five of our phase four students went to TR2 to take part in Beyond Face’s industry day. Beyond Face are a performance company based in Plymouth whose mission is to raise the profile and visibility of people of colour in the arts. The day gave our students the opportunity to meet and partake in a number workshops and discussions led by industry professionals including: actors, playwrights, dancers, directors and artistic directors. Students were also able to connect with local young people from across the city.
