Visual art projected in the bar, by Gideon Hall.

Female Arts was founded in 2011 at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Our talented review team are also playwrights, directors, actors, theatre-makers, comedians and artists striving to improve the representation of women on stage and screen.

Statistics show that for every 3 men on stage, there is 1 woman. We're reversing that trend, until we get to gender-equality on stage!
