Creating new diverse superheroes and superheroines with young people
Inspired by the lack of representation of ethnically diverse characters in western comic books and films the project has worked with over 200 young refugees and other young Londoners since 2015.
In 2015 we worked with young refugees from Refugee Youth and Young Roots to create a multi-discipline performance about superheroes. Inspired by this work, Oladipo Agboluaje wrote The Croydon Avengers, a new play for young audiences that toured in 2018.
