Join us as a Maker for our inclusive Digital Heroes of the Imagination project
After a successful pilot project in Summer 2020, we're really excited to be partnering again with Touretteshero to deliver a virtual inclusive drama and storytelling project 'Digital Heroes of the Imagination'. The project will see students at our SEN partner schools receive creative packs, featuring masks, craft materials, and resource booklets, that they'll use when working alongside a National Youth Theatre Creative Buddy to transform themselves into superheroes.
We're currently looking for National Youth Theatre Members to join us as Makers on the project.
Sunday Sessions: Apply to Curate
Born from a number of member-led new writing scratch nights (including Rush, curated by Shakira Newton, and Mixtape, curated by Nathan Whitebrook) Sunday Sessions gives a Company Member (or small group of Members) the chance to curate a performance evening around a theme, performance type, or stimulus.
Got an idea for a performance night? Interested in learning more about creative producing? Why not apply to curate the next Sunday Session?
