‘Black Hair & Make-up’ workshop for MUAs in the Audiovisual industry

Want to learn more and get acquainted with techniques for Black Hair & Make-Up? Do you want to contribute to a more inclusive industry and work environment? Then this is your opportunity to come to this two-day workshop, which FilmForward is developing in collaboration with Marleen Holthuis and Trudy Buren (ACM Professionals) as well as international Make-up Artist Viola Sarkodee (Teshura Styling).

This two-day introductory workshop is for makeup artists, makeup and hair artists (MUAs), who want to acquire more knowledge and skills to provide “Black Hair and Makeup” for dark skintones. The workshop starts with a “Positionality” training, hosted by Winnie Roseval, which includes an exploration of how you view the world and how that affects the choices you make in, for example, your professional practice as a makeup and hair artist. By creating awareness and discussing best-practices, we hope that cast and crew will be better attuned in the future to what is needed to do justice to a character with dark skin tone on set.
