Inspiring the Future of Theatre is a wide-reaching industry initiative launched in July 2018 by UK Theatre and the Society of London Theatre (SOLT) in partnership with charity Education and Employers. The campaign forms part of UK Theatre and SOLT's Workforce Development Strategy.
As part of this initiative, #InspiringFutureTheatre Day is an annual celebration of the amazing work theatre professionals do across the UK to inspire young people, communities and schools.
Unfortunately this year as we are unable to host in-person talks and workshops Inspiring Future Theatre will be a little different but we want to make a big impact across social media to remind people just how important theatre is.
For the last 2 years #InspiringFutureTheatre Day trended UK-wide, and we want to repeat this success and spread the message in 2020.
Search for #InspiringFutureTheatre on social media and discover all the amazing work theatres and theatre companies do to inspire young people in communities and schools, or discover more about the inspirational people who work in theatre.
Many theatres have committed to remaining connected to their audiences and communities even while in lockdown, and searching #InspiringFutureTheatre will also show you some of this important work that's been done.
The next Inspiring Future Theatre Day will take place on 8 July 2020.
Help us make an impact. Find information on how you can get involved under the #InspiringFutureTheatre Day tab below.
Below you'll also find a selection of activities that we've carried out in previous years.
