Yvette Hutchison was awarded a WIF award of £20k to make a 10-15 minute film to document the research from her African Womens' Playwright Network project. Its objective is to capture and amplify the non-academic voices conveying how AWPN has influenced and changed their lives and livelihoods.

When did you last watch a play written by an African woman? Have you ever read one? This is only the second published collection of plays written by African women, the last edited by Kathy Perkins ten years ago. The African Women’s Playwright Network, established through a n AHRC and University of Warwick funded research project, has connected more than 240 African women creative practitioners from 21 countries on the African continent and beyond.
We would like to warmly welcome you join us as we launch one outcome of this project, Contemporary plays by African Women, in Coventry and/ or Oxford.
