Cultural exchanges bring people from different backgrounds together and unite them by speaking a common (artistic) language. NBTS intends to expand Stockholm’s (and also Sweden’s) already growing cultural capacity, by adding another dimension with a concept that has so far been unexplored. NBTS sees a need to work with this concept and create spaces that are facilitated by this collaboration.
To create an intersectional space where we can pay attention and tribute to the performing arts and culture from Africa and the African diaspora. We define and remind ourselves of the stories about us and the stories we tell. We set no boundaries for our creativity; and thus we change our own future.
NBTS is an artistic platform for both African classics, new drama, performing arts and multidisciplinary experiments. NBTS will fulfill its mission by offering an opportunity for creative learning through international co-production, education and an ongoing conversation.
Values and beliefs of NBTS
We value complexity, personal choice, inspiration and our African heritage. We value a space where you feel safe, seen, celebrated.
