BAAR has been founded to support and manage some of the issues being faced by black and brown actors at any stage of their professional development. Whether it is at drama school or working day to day actors of the global majority have an incredibly limited access to affordable and accessible accent support.
We know that it is still the case that black and brown actors can feel reduced to tokens in stage productions and television shows. Of course as actors we want to accept work regardless of whether we authentically fit the narrative of the piece. A recent example of how problematic this is showed up, was in the recent Channel 4 TV Show "It's A Sin ''. The young black protagonist naturally comes from a loud African family, which is fair enough but when the actors bringing this scene to life do not sound authentic, there is something that shrinks inside of the black viewer.
However, we really believe that BAAR really addresses some of the challenges and a clear way through so that actors of the global majority have equal access to relevant and authentic accent support. The Black Actors Accent Room serves as a means by which we can hold our industry to account, build community and also serve those people from the global majority.
We provide regular, affordable and accessible online Accent Workshops for actors of colour - ran by featured professional accent coaches.
As our workshops are drop in you can book as many sessions as you require, either to feel more confident in your auditions / self tapes or to add this skill to your spotlight CV.
We have 3 ticket options available to make our workshops as financially accessible as possible:
