THE

FOUNDERS

HUSNAA & DANIEL ANDERSON

(ROPP) was founded and is headed by creative artists and married couple Daniel & Husnaa Anderson..

as a critical response to their observations and experiences of; social exclusion and decay, broken relationships, academic underachievement, criminality amongst BAME groups, ignorance surrounding Mental health and feelings of disempowerment within their community in Birmingham. The deciding factor that urged the power couple to take action was them noticing a lack of high quality drama initiatives and theatre and film production outlets that could truthfully represent and explore the key issues mentioned above in a unique and creative way.

Between them they have over 38 years’ experience of working as creative practitioners within professional theatre, TV, film and radio. Throughout their careers they have also had the opportunity to work with the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 on numerous occasions, equipping them both with the gravitas needed when dealing holistically with the creative arts and its role to play in society.

 

They both strongly believe that Drama, Theatre and Film has the capacity to bring people together and change lives for the better. They’re love for the arts united them and impacts them individually to always stay true to “self” no matter what.
