Between March and August 2022, eight young artists and organisers from Uganda, Malaysia, the British Virgin Islands, India, Pakistan, Rwanda, Trinidad and Tobago and the UK were given no-strings-attached grants by Birmingham-based Beatfreeks, to continue and deepen their work.
As We Speak tells the story of these inspiring young artists, with a documentary, live performances and a space to discuss this unique model of supporting artists. Call it trust-based support, call it a documentary, call it a global experiment in shared experience and purpose. Whatever you call it, it’s happening as we speak.
