Date12 & 18 March 2023

Workshop ‘Black Hair & Make-up’ for MUAs in the AV sector

The awareness and knowledge about ‘Black Hair & Make-up’ for dark skintones is not yet sufficient on many film and television sets. To better meet the needs of cast & crew and the AV sector, to become more diverse and inclusive, FilmForward develops in collaboration with Marleen Holthuis and Trudy Buren (ACM Professionals) and international Make-up Artist Viola Sarkodee (Teshura Styling ), a two-day workshop ‘Black Hair & Make-up’ in Amsterdam.

This two-day introductory workshop is for make-up, make-up and hair artists (MUAs), who want to learn more knowledge and skills to provide ‘Black Hair and Make-up’ for dark skintones. The workshop is introduced by a ‘Positionality’ training, led by Winnie Roseval, which examines, among other things, how you look at the world and how that influences the choices you make in, for example, your professional practice as an MUA. By raising awareness and discussing best practices, we hope that cast and crew will be better aligned in the future on what is needed to bring out a dark-skinned character on set.
