2b Acting's new interactive video, 'To be human', shines a light on their collaboration to support the work of Leeds West African and Portuguese Association.

The Leeds West African and Portuguese Association mission is to offer sign-posting
facilities to those seeking assistance but more importantly find ways to integrate them
into the Leeds community through activities and events.
2b Acting announces its collaboration with the Association with the launch of the No
interactive video, 'To be human'. The video effectively asks viewers to consider how
humans treat each other by seeing how they answer questions that govern human
behaviours. In this way it is hoped people can better empathise with the plight of
immigrants and help breakdown some of the negative barriers the Association faces.
This use of creativity to support an organisation's objective is new for 2b Acting but
fits well with the company's goal of using the power of storytelling to change lives.
"We are using Interactive videos online and on stage to engage audiences and if this
can bring communities together then this is a real benefit.", says 2b Acting. "This is
an exciting use of our art and it's great to be working with the Leeds West African
and Portuguese Association to improve the lives of people and promote the
inclusiveness of Leeds."
The collaboration is leading to the development of a programme of creative
community events which will be held at 2b Acting's basement venue in Leeds.
Members of the Association and the wider public will be encouraged to attend.
Events are planned to start later this year assuming it is safe to run them within the
government's social distancing guidelines.
