The Act For Change Project is a newly developed task group aimed towards bringing equality and diversity to British Television Drama. After witnessing the severe lack of representation for BAME artists in a trailer promoting the new season of ITV Drama, actor and writer Danny Lee Wynter decided to respond by gathering a group of his friends to form Act For Change, all in the hopes of raising further awareness in bringing upon a more inclusive environment in British Television.
With an upcoming launch event set to take place on the 30th of June at the Young Vic Theatre, Shades of Noir met with Danny to speak about the organisation, what to expect at the upcoming event, as well as other plans for future development.
