Engagement

Engagement

Box of Tricks’ engagement programme is about engaging with theatre through participation, community and development.

Our engagement work targets three key groups:

– Emerging professionals: Talent development of playwrights and theatremakers in the North West;

– Communities and Audiences: Participation and engagement activities with local communities and wraparound events with audiences;

– Young People: Workshops and activities to inspire a younger generation.

[All workshop leaders are DBS-checked theatre professionals, experienced in delivering workshops with all ages.]

 

“Our engagement activities aim to provide access to the arts, connect communities, inspire younger generations and create professional pathways into the industry.” Adam Quayle and Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder, Joint Artistic Directors
