The creation of South Sudan Theatre Company shows how important art can be, even in the most desperate conditions.

Founder and CEO, Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust

It’s a cause of great celebration that the world’s newest country is being given an opportunity to show their theatre in London. We should always remember that the only true form of diplomacy is culture.
