B.Diverse in action
Diverse Dance’s end of year showcase was held at the Lost Theatre on Saturday 28th November. The evening performance was opened by the Mayor of Lambeth, Councillor Donatus Anyanwu.
The event was made possible by support and funding from the White Stuff Foundation.
Starring in the show were performers from Rathbone Youth Club’s, Made 2 Dance; The Old Library’s mainstream youth group, Bite Back, and the Diverse Adult group, B.Diverse.
During 2015 the dancers have been working creatively to discover new styles and music, and have been encouraged to take on the roles of choreographers, teachers, movement directors and even filmmakers. The show was a celebration of all the fun they had with experimenting and featured solos and duets created independently.
One of the highlights was the premier screening of WAVE – a dance film project created in the summer with filmmaker Owa Barua. This summer project was funded by Young Lambeth Co-op.

We need Trustees!
Rathbone is under-represented by Trustees from BME backgrounds. We are working hard to ensure that the diversity of our service user group is reflected across the charity.
Charity Trustees oversee the running of the organisation. This role of responsibility is ideal for professionals seeking experience of, and insight into, the voluntary sector.
Experience of professional responsibility and achievement is required.

Rathbone Learning is a new project being developed at The Old Library in West Norwood.
We believe that quality training can be made more affordable locally. With a fantastic resource in The Old Library we are developing a social training enterprise called Rathbone Learning.
Rathbone Learning is inviting Lambeth charities and organisations to tell us what training they would like provided locally by completing this questionnaire.
