Guest Artist Support Sessions: Anna-Maria Nabirye
We all need a little support right now, and Artsadmin’s Artist Support team is here for you. In addition to re-opening our one-to-one Creative Support Service in March, we’ve invited six fantastic artists who are each offering six one-hour sessions in March and April. These sessions are a place to speak about the big ideas of your art and dig into the creative corners you might feel stuck in.
Anna-Maria Nabirye is an actor, writer, director and artist.
Introduction from Anna-Maria
My name is Anna-Maria and I use she/her pronouns. I am a Black, Ugandan-British person born and raised in London, currently living on the South East Coast. I went to a state funded performing arts college and then to drama school to study acting. I have had many jobs alongside my creative career from working in pubs/fast-food takeaways to teaching kayaking in Cornwall. I work as an actress in mainstream theatre, film and television, as well as in devised, collaborative, experimental and political projects. I make my own work which varies from community workshops, plays, short films, experimental art films, zines, documentaries and projects that live in galleries. I mainly collaborate with other creative artists and some of these form on-going artistic relationships. I teach and coach acting both informally and at universities. I run a micro ethical fashion brand called AfroRetro and a community arts company called Afri-Co-Lab with my sister, that champions creativity as means to explore culture and identity. Amplifying diverse representations of the experiences of Black women is at the heart of everything I do.
I am particularly interested in speaking with Black artists and artists of colour.
These sessions are now filled but you can still book a Creative Support Session with one of the Artsadmin team.
This workshop series is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.
The sessions are currently delivered online via Zoom. Our Zoom account has Otter.ai captions embedded and we can offer BSL interpretation upon request. Please indicate any access needs when you book your session.
