Artistic Director Leadership Programme


Artistic Director Leadership Programme


“Who is curating the culture? Predominantly it is white, middle-class men.” David Oyelowo

How many people of colour are running publically funded theatre organisations in England?  Not many.  It’s time for a change.

We are working with tiata fahodzi as well as, Talawa Theatre Company and 20 Stories High – to stage an intervention and lead the change. A change is gonna come but we’re not going to sit and wait.

We know that representation matters. We know difference leads to innovation, surprise, challenge, and originality.

Like David Oyelowo, we believe that to achieve this diversity – of art, artists, workforce and audience – it must begin at the top.

Artistic Director Leadership Programme is a training programme for future theatre leaders. The programme is open to people of colour who want to be artistic leaders.

The progamme is delivered by tiata fahodzi, Freedom Studios, Talawa Theatre Company and 20 Stories High and supported by the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme (RTYDS) and Independent Theatre Council (ITC).
