British-African theatre company tiata fahodzi has chosen ASMA HUSSAIN as its new Executive Director.
Hussain’s previous roles include Trusts & Foundations Manager at the Royal Opera House and Development Manager at Theatre Royal Stratford East.
"I was inspired to apply for the role from reading about tiata fahodzi’s commitment to theatre that is fearless, and that celebrates the multiple identities we each carry within us daily. And, refreshingly for an arts organisation, it is unafraid to be driven by and demand social change," Hussain said.
In preparation for its 25th anniversary, tiata fahodzi has also appointed seven new trustees.
West Midlands writer, director and curator SAMPIRA WILLBORNE, family law solicitor and actress SHERMA POLIDORE-PERRINS, founder and Creative Director of Museum of Colour SAMENUA SESHER and British-Ghanaian performer, singer and voiceover artist AMY ROCKSON will all join the board this month.
They will be joined by Creative Producer ALISHA ARTRY, Tamasha Theatre Company Lead Producer DEBO ADEBAYO and Director of People & Operations for the Creative UK Group CAROLINE HINDS.
