Theatre Centre brings world-class theatre straight into the heart of schools. Our vision is that children and young people are empowered in their activism and leadership through theatre, using their voices and ideas to make change in themselves and the world around them. As we move towards our 70th birthday, we continue to lead the Theatre in Schools movement as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and wave the flag for more writers and artists to make work for young audiences in the UK and beyond.
We are looking for an inspirational and dedicated artistic lead of the organisation with experience of directing plays, working with and supporting artists, working with young people in creative/educational settings and developing artistic strategies. Working alongside the Executive Director/CEO, this role will oversee a newly developed Future Makers process, which embeds the principle of co-creation in all the work that we do, unifying all of the strands of our work. This role will provide both coherent and dynamic artistic leadership for the Theatre Centre programme, Future Makers and the core Theatre Centre team and ensure that the organisation continues to play a leading role in the development of theatre that reflects the lives of children and young people.
