Empowering women and girls through sport and theatre
Running. Sharing experiences. Making theatre.
Run The World helps women and girls take their first steps into running, create a safe environment for sharing experiences and together help them create a piece of theatre from those stories. Participants have full autonomy over their stories and how they are shared thereby, empowering themselves and inspiring others.
We are committed to working with women and girls as it is globally recognised that sport and theatre can be a force to amplify women’s voices, tear down gender barriers, fight discrimination and take a step towards gender equality. We endeavour to use sport and theatre to give women and girls everywhere a chance to experience a full and empowered life.
Ashiana Community Project
Watch and be inspired. Run The World was first commissioned to work with a group of women from Ashiana Community Project in Sparkbrook. Here’s a short video about the project and the audio walk they wanted to create.
You can listen to the audio walk here.

- Ruksana - So, there’s a stereotype, there’s a runner who is generally six-foot-tall, is a male, really really attractive, all toned, great muscles, just generally very very confident. When actually, runners are mums, runners are women that are really busy, they don’t have the size zero figure, they are absolutely tired, but they are still dedicated. They… Read More »Ruksana
