Taking Part

We love sharing the creative process with new people

as an integral part of our production process and in workshops, residencies and targetted participation projects. Every year we work with hundreds of people, young and old, some who call themselves artists and some who don't.

Our participation programme has the aim of being accessible to anyone wanting to engage. Our work ranges from one to one therapeutic work with some of the most at risk young people in the UK, to performance opportunities for young professionals, and everything in between.

 

We support the development of younger artists, providing worthwhile opportunities including internships, placements and volunteer positions working within our professional teams. We run a mentoring scheme for emerging theatre companies offering training, advice and practical support.

 

Have a look at the various strands of work we do:

 

>>Targeted projects

 

>>Residencies

 

>>Schools and Colleges

 

>>Dramatherapy

 

>>Talent Development

 

If you or any of the young people you work with would benefit from any of our strands of participation, please don't hesitate to get in touch - contact our Participation Manager Alex Ramsden with any questions.

6 Thoughts on Community Theatre/Working in schools

Tangled Feet have just returned from 9 days in Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria where we co-created a new piece of site-specific theatre with 5 local schools (150 young people) and the local community. It was a gruelling, fairly stressful and completely uplifting experience. Since returning home I’ve been thinking about what it means to make work in and alongside a community and how powerful the effect can be when that community has less opportunity to access artistic experiences than others. I’ve also been thinking of where love fits into community theatre.
