Building on SOLT and UK Theatre’s recent Workforce Review, it aims to showcase the range of careers available in theatre to young people, to build the future workforce encourage and strengthen connections between schools and their local theatres build audiences of the future
Theatre and the performing arts are part of the creative industries, which are worth £101.5 billion, and are growing at nearly twice the rate of the economy. We believe that if the sector is to continue to thrive, it must draw on the talent base, and build audiences, from all areas of society. That’s where you come in.
Inspiring the Future of Theatre is a partnership between UK Theatre, SOLT, and the charity Education and Employers.
The campaign aims to showcase the range of careers available to young people in theatre, with the aim of broadening the horizons of the children and encouraging them to think of theatre, and off stage roles in particular, as they progress through their school career.
As part of this project, we are asking the theatre industry workforce to sign up to our campaign and volunteer to go into a local school to talk about their job. You can read more about signing up to the campaign here: https://uktheatre.org/inspirin...
We are also holding a series of events around the country between primary schools and their local theatres.
