  7. Online Seminar | Hiba...

In this online seminar series, we have been hearing from Community Theatre practitioners from around the world and learning lessons from across our borders. For this seminar, we’ll hear from two practitioners who are migrants themselves, and now work here, predominantly with other migrants. Through sharing stories, strategies, and successes we hope that this free seminar series enriches your own practice.

Join us on Wednesday 17th July, 2pm – 3.00pm for the third seminar, where Hiba Elhindi of SuFIA (Sudanese Folklore-Inspired Arts) and Carlota Matos, practitioner, will share their knowledge and experience with us.

Carlota Matos (In her own words)

Carlota Matos (she/her) is a Portuguese theatre and performance artist based in Bristol and working internationally. With a focus on access and social change, her practice often explores themes of migration, identity and mental ill-health, in the form of documentary and participatory theatre. Carlota has collaborated with organisations such as Local Learning, Lightbox Theatre, Many Minds, Travelling Light, and Bristol Old Vic. She is part of Future Laboratory, a project of research residences throughout Europe to identify missing narratives on our stages. She completed an Arts Council DYCP to scale up her work and research ethics in participation, and was commissioned by Counterpoints for Platforma Festival 2023. Carlota has been developing a project with migrant women, in partnership with Bristol-based charity Borderlands. She is also creating a performance piece with Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg for TalentLAB festival in June 2024.

Hiba Elhindi (In her own words)

Hiba Elhindi is a Sudanese-British creative producer based in the Southwest. She is passionate about using arts to empower young generations, bring communities together and tell unheard stories. Hiba curated a number of art projects involving members of the Sudanese community in Bristol, including Sudanese Folklore-Inspired Arts (SuFIA): a combined art project for the Sudanese community in Bristol , Games without Borders,: a video archive of British drama games explained in Arabic; and Sudafest: an annual community festival celebrating Sudanese heritage. Besides her work in the community, Hiba works as part of the Arts Development Team at Bristol City Council. Hiba holds a master’s degree in Arts Management from Bath Spa University.

For some speakers in this series, English is a second language. We ask attendees to bear in mind that different cultures have different accepted terminology, and to be generous with this translation divide.
