"The recent MENASA Diversity Showcase, held last Saturday on YouTube, was a triumphant success! This showcase served as an exceptional platform for actors of Middle Eastern, North African, South Asian, South West Asian, and North African (MENASA-SWANA) descent to present their skills and gain prominence in the film and television industry." -BroadwayWorld
"The main goal of the MENASA Diversity Showcase was to improve representation and inclusion of MENASA actors in the entertainment industry. With only a handful of MENASA actors being represented in mainstream media, this event presented an opportunity for these talented individuals to break into the industry and make their voices heard. The showcase aimed to level the playing field and offer an equal chance for actors from diverse backgrounds to be discovered.
The event received massive support from the industry, with 50 professionals, including casting directors, agents, managers, producers, and other VIPs from LA, NYC, DC, and beyond, volunteering their time to watch the showcase during the premiere or as a replay. The organizers extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of them for their support and recognition of the importance of diversity in the industry."
