YT Directors’ Development Programme – Applications Open

YT Directors’ Development Programme

Applications are now open for the YT Directors’ Development Programme, a brand new four-month long career-progression programme for experienced directors of youth theatre. Through the programme participants will be encouraged to take risks in their practice and further their aspirations as theatre-makers.

From August to November 2019, a cohort of up to eight youth theatre directors will come together to:

  • view performances
  • take part in workshops and discussions
  • receive coaching
  • develop new projects with young performers
  • present brand new works-in-progress

The programme is specifically designed for practitioners who already have a range of youth theatre directing experience, including individuals who may have taken a step back from directing themselves in order to run companies or allow junior colleagues opportunities.

We are pleased to offer this programme with the support of our partners; Edinburgh International Festival, Traverse Theatre and Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society. Participation is free and application is open to all directors who can demonstrate a commitment to youth theatre in Scotland.

For full information on the YT Directors’ Development Programme, please download the Application Form below and email it to no later than
 12 noon, Monday 10 June 2019.
