Week two in charge, and our new Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham is already winning awards!

Earlier this week Indhu attended the prestigious Asian Women of Achievement Awards, an inspiring evening celebrating Britain’s pioneering Asian women.

The awards, hosted by Real Business, Pinky Lilani OBE and Caspian Media, brought together an incredible list of talented, ambitious nominees from ground-breaking entrepreneurs, passionate philanthropists to City professionals.

With 11 categories and 52 nominees, competition was tough, but there could only be 10 winners…

A huge congratulations to our new Artistic Director!

The Arts & Culture Award

Indhu Rubasingham, artistic director, The Tricycle Theatre, for her “astounding achievements” in theatre, having also directed at the National Theatre, The Royal Court and The Almeida.

Tonight’s winners have all shown courage, intelligence and determination to succeed in their chosen fields and will certainly help to inspire the next generation of ambitious women keen to make their mark in the professional, business or cultural sectors,” commented Chris Sullivan of RBS, the Asian Women of Achievement Awards’ main supporter.

The Awards’ founder Pinky Lilani said: “We’re now in our 13th year of the Asian Women of Achievement Awards and the wealth and variety of the talent we unearth year-on-year never ceases to amaze me. These women are remarkably talented and are true trailblazers in their individual sectors and specialities, but they all share one common goal: to make a positive difference for young Asian women.”
