Spotlight on the Sector podcast logo

We are pleased to announce the launch of Spotlight on the Sector, a series of short podcasts where we interview youth theatre leaders in Scotland as they respond and reflect on the Covid-19 pandemic and the impact it has made to their work.

The first episode features Deborah McArthur from Culture NL in North Lanarkshire who discusses the immediate impact of lockdown and the challenges of keeping in touch with her participants.

Future episodes will include Mahri Reilly (Scottish Youth Theatre), Matthew Swan (Regal Young Company, West Lothian) and Lisa Keenan (Tron Theatre, Glasgow).
