HyperFusion’s recent tour of BOY is proud to have been an integral part of Stonewall Award given to Southwark Council.
BOY is our show that explores Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic bullying with young people and follows the tragic story of Joe. The piece has a forum interactive workshop section where young people get to ‘advise’ the characters as to how to make their situation better.
Sarah Ellis attends the National Diversity Awards as we are nominated as Community Organisation award.
The National Diversity Awards – a prestigious black tie event, which celebrates the excellent achievements of grass- root communities that tackle the issues in today’s society, giving them recognition for their dedication and hard work.
Charities, role models and community heroes will be honoured at the ceremony showcasing their outstanding devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion; thus embracing the excellence of all our citizens irrespective of race, faith, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability and culture.
The concept for the National Diversity Awards arose when The Diversity Group identi?ed an urgent need for more positive role models to be actively promoted, with the aim to empower and inspire the wide breadth of diverse communities across the UK.
If ever there was a time to celebrate and elevate the truly staggering diversity of talent the UK has to o?er, it is now – opportunities are thin, and deprived communities need motivation and inspiration.
These awards are for people who inspire other individuals through their work, through their commitment to helping others, through their infectious personalities and through adversity.
Our nominees and award winners are an integral part of helping people in today’s society to believe they can achieve their goals and ambitions, no matter what background you come from.
HyperFusion were shortlisted for a European Diversity Award as Community Project of 2016.
