Aspiring theatre-makers get to have a sneak peek at Life Backstage to find out more about the people, skills and talent that go into each performance. If you're a professional theatre-maker you can also sign up to be an ambassador to make a difference and connect with a local school to share your knowledge and experience.
Inspiring the Future of Theatre is a partnership between Society of London Theatre (SOLT), UK Theatre and Inspiring the Future (part of the charity Education and Employers), aiming to nurture new generations of theatre-makers and audiences from school age, and connecting schools with their local theatres and industry professionals to help achieve this. The initiative resulted from SOLT and UK Theatre’s Workforce Review, which showed the need to build a sustainable, resilient and globally competitive theatre workforce for the future representing the UK’s diverse population, with particular emphasis on off-stage roles.
Theatre professionals who would like to sign up to be an Inspiring the Future of Theatre ambassador can visit the Inspiring the Future website. Theatres and arts organisations are also able to register their interest in getting involved and working with their local schools, via the website.
