Creative Leaders 2020-21

In March 2020, we brought together our first cohort of Creative Leaders at our rehearsal studIo in North London for their first week of training. 

A new strand of NYT's wider Creative Leadership programmme, Creative Leaders, offers the chance for 32 NYT Members to receive specialist training in facilitation, arts leadership, and inclusive practice, and to learn more about building a career in the theatre industry. This programme is specifically targeted at young people currently underrepresented in the arts. 

Initially due to run over the course of three dedicated weekends, shortly after our first weekend of training the UK went into lockdown and our plans changed and the training was reimagined online. Led by Kane Husbands and Delma Kane, with guest sessions from NYT Associates and industry voices including Alistair Wilkinson, Steven Kavuma, and Tobi Kyeremateng, our training weekends wrapped up in February 2021. Following onto the Festival we welcomed some of our cohort back to lead a takeover of our Spring Made by Members Festival in April. The Festival Takeover featured workshops led by our Creative Leaders on collaboration, creating work through mindfulness, free writing and co-creation, as well as social media takeovers, Q+A sessions, and a virtual gallery of creative work.
