About Revolution Mix

“Revolution Mix is about doing not talking. When the subject of Diversity comes up – people gather in rooms and talk. If you sit in that room you will hear more reasons why things can’t change than why they can. But there is no question that there is an appetite for change. Revolution Mix is what we are all going to DO.” 

Dawn Walton, founder and former Artistic Director of Eclipse Theatre Company

The Black British story is more than just slavery, immigration and teenage gang crime.

Revolution Mix is a movement: placing the Black* narrative at the heart of British Theatre.

Revolution Mix stories are the Hidden Histories that exist in a landscape of more than 500 years of Black British History.

*To Eclipse, Black includes anyone who is marginalized for their race or ethnicity.

How can you help us?

We have an amazing opportunity to bring about substantial change, but we need your help to do this.

Eclipse is a charity and over the next three years we need to raise £150,000 to achieve our ambitious aims. Any donation that you can give, large or small, will be appreciated and will help to support this work.

If you donate now, one of our generous funders, Arts Council England, has offered to match your gift with a donation of the same amount – doubling whatever you give.

Please support us and become part of the Eclipse revolution!

Dawn Walton,
Artistic Director
