About the event

Opportunity for directors and theatre makers in the South West

In a new partnership with RTYDS, Tobacco Factory Theatres, Beyond Face, Hall for Cornwall, imPOSSIBLE Producing and Exeter Northcott Theatre, we’re delivering online and in-person sessions to energise and inspire those who live and make work in the South West.

Up to 20 directors and theatre makers will get a chance to learn and grow with creatives in their area, under the guidance of the partner theatres and companies.

RTYDS provides training for under-represented directors and theatre makers at all stages of their careers. We developed New Directions to create hubs in individual areas around England - to move resources away from London and establish self-sustaining networks in local areas.

What will New Directions South West involve? You’ll take part in a curated series of workshops where you’ll expand your skills, do some thinking around your practice, and have the chance to chat to the Artistic Directors of the partner theatre companies.

First, we’ll all meet online on Friday 8th & Saturday 9th April to find out more about each other and take part in some facilitated sessions around making theatre. Then, we’ll meet in-person on Saturday 23rd April, where you can chat to each of the organisations and take part in practical workshops.
