The Forum is for experienced Youth Theatre and Creative Learning Managers who want to push their own practice and work with other professionals on sector-wide developments.
The agenda for the Forum will include:
- A presentation by Ben Twist on his career in theatre and youth theatre, including leading change at the Contact Theatre in Manchester, North Edinburgh Arts Centre and through his current work at Creative Carbon Scotland.
- Group discussions on challenges and lessons learnt for managing change.
- Sharing with the group opportunities and your professional development ‘offers’ and ‘desires’.
- Reviewing a draft application for a joint audience development initiative for the youth theatre sector.
After the Forum, Managers are welcome to join us for a drink and a trip to see Ignite Theatre’s show ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ which is part of Refugee Festival Scotland. This is on at Websters Theatre in the West End at 7pm.
The Forum is free for YTAS Members to attend, £10 for Non-Members. There are only 20 places available for the Forum so interested professionals are encouraged to book early. (N.B. Ticket price to see the Ignite show is not included)
