What is Inspiring the Future of Theatre?
Inspiring the Future of Theatre is a campaign that 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
This involves people who work in theatre signing up to become a volunteer and donating 1 hour of their time per year to visit a local school’s careers event.
Who is Inspiring the Future of Theatre run by?
Inspiring the Future of Theatre is a partnership between charity Education and Employers and theatre membership bodies Society of London Theatre (SOLT) and UK Theatre. It forms part of SOLT and UK Theatre’s Workforce Development Strategy.
We also celebrate Inspiring Future Theatre Day in July, for the last three year we #InspiringFutureTheatre trended UK wide and made a big impact in making less visible roles more visible.
