Are you between the ages of 14-25 and involved in running and supporting workshops in your youth theatre? Are you interested in meeting other young leaders in similar roles from across the country? Join our Workshop Assistant Exchange group, facilitated by Mhairi Gilmore and Jo Sharp, to…
- Have fun and connect with each other
- Exchange skills, ideas, and challenges
- Reflect upon and share your views on the youth theatre sector’s needs
This event is part of our Next Generation strand of training, focusing on empowering the leaders of tomorrow – in the arts and beyond. This first workshop of the year will take place online, and you will get the chance to exchange stories through creative tasks and share your achievements and challenges with the group. This is a great way to meet new people and get a taste for what the Workshop Assistants Exchange is all about.
The second workshop will be in-person in November where you will get the chance to come together, share skills and see a show! Travel expenses will be covered to make sure that this is accessible to everyone who is interested. Specifics TBC!
Why are we doing this?
Many youth theatres across Scotland have paid or volunteer young leaders acting as workshop assistants or advocates to support their work – just like you! We know that you have a unique insight into the current challenges and benefits of youth theatre, as you are both current participants and junior leaders. We want to give you a stronger collective voice in the development of your groups and help you to connect with other young people in similar roles across the country.
The YTAS sector training programme is supported by funding from the Gannochy Trust and Creative Scotland.
