Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Lightpost Company has launched a series of free online events created in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Fix It: Time To Breathe has been designed to explore and share strategies on 'how we address the adversities young African Caribbean men face in arts, health & justice'.

The first in a series of three events took place on Tuesday (14 July), on the subject of trauma. Attended by 45 participants, the digital conversation brought together a mix of young people, practitioners working with young people, commissioners, decision-makers, service managers and community leaders.

The two remaining Fix It events will focus on Justice & Rights (21 July) and Healing (28 July).

Each conversation is intended as an opportunity to learn, share and look at effective approaches inspired by the innovative Shifting The Dial programme - an initiative dedicated to boosting young Black men's resilience and wellbeing. 

Interested participants can find out more and book their place for the next two Fix It conversations by visiting birmingham-rep.co.uk.
