Dibby Theatre's First Time

Dibby Theatre has partnered with the charity George House Trust to tackle HIV stigma and shame through the arts, ahead of World Aids Day December 1.

Led by co-artistic director and HIV activist Nathaniel Hall (It’s A Sin, First Time) and supported by George House, the cultural offering includes films, panel discussions, plays and parties culminating in a week-long residency at Contact on Oxford Road.

In Equal Parts is Dibby Theatre’s creative outreach programme aiming to educate, destigmatise and empower people and is aligned to Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham’s pledge to end all new transmissions of HIV in the city region by 2030.
