Join the industry in inspiring future theatre
Join us and support SOLT and UK Theatre's industry initiative, Inspiring the Future of Theatre, to help showcase the huge range of careers available in theatre, and encourage children and young people to consider jobs they might not have known existed.
SOLT and UK Theatre’s new industry initiative, Inspiring the Future of Theatre is a long term campaign to showcase the huge range of careers available in theatre, and to encourage children and young people to consider jobs that they might not have known existed.
Theatre and the performing arts are part of the creative industries, which are worth £92bn, and are growing at twice the rate of the economy. UK Theatre and SOLT believe that if the sector is to continue to thrive, it must draw on the talent base, and build audiences, from all areas of society.
To achieve this ambitious project, SOLT, UK Theatre and Education and Employers have launched a drive to recruit industry ambassadors who will be matched with schools across the UK, taking part in events to lay the groundwork for young people to make informed and ambitious career decisions.
Become an Ambassador
SOLT and UK Theatre are aiming to sign up 1000 Ambassadors by 11 July to volunteer to visit a school for 1 hour to tell young people all about a career in the theatre.
#Inspiringfuturetheatre is an open invitation to everyone at every stage of their career, from all over the country and in all career paths to become an Ambassador.
The aim is to tell young people about the broad range of theatre careers available to them and build a strong network between ambassadors, schools and theatres.
If you’ve signed up already, thank you! If you haven’t, sign up.
