b.supreme is an arts charity set up in 1998. We have dedicated the last 22 years to producing projects which inspire young people to connect with the arts. Since 2006, our focus has been on the development of engaging and inspiring dance initiatives for young women which have included a London wide hip hop training project and international hip hop festival for women at London's Southbank Centre (see pic)
We are internationally recognised in the hip hop industry producing dance theatre, outreach and training initiatives. So far, our work has engaged 10989 young women aged 14-25 in some form of physical activity and our performance projects have platformed over 1200 artists since 2006.
Sisterhood of the Arts
At the start of 2020, we launched 'The Sisterhood of Arts' a new project for women working in the arts to gain essential skills, collaborate, foster ideas and support each other. With the impact of Covid-19 on the arts industry, the need for our project is now even greater. Many women are out of work having either lost their jobs or project funding and feeling deflated and unsure of how to use their transferable skills, pivot ideas, deal with loss of confidence and identity...
We would like to use any funds raised to pay for leading women in arts and business to run a series of online meet ups and workshops. The Sisterhood of the Arts network will gain confidence and support, learn new skills, foster ideas, collaborate and find opportunities to progress their careers and ideas and emerge from the pandemic stronger, more robust and ready to kick start the arts industry.
