Rehmat Rayatt’s work on the BBC

Supporting emerging artists

in 2019 Essex Cultural Diversity Project linked Essex-Born filmmaker Rehmat Rayatt with the New Creatives programme, funded by Arts Council England and BBC Arts. As part of her New Creatives commission, she created a 5-minute film entitled Terra Firma, which explored her cultural background and identity, aired on BBC 4 in September 2019, as part of their Rhyme and Reason: BBC Introducing Arts programme showcasing a selection of short films by young artists. This was an excellent opportunity for us to support an Essex artist from a diverse background, from proposal to the final screening stages.
