The Theatres Trust comment on Lyn Gardner's The Guardian's blog post

26th June 2015

The Theatres Trust commented on Lyn Gardner’s The Guardian’s blog post
“Lyn says that ‘Every theatre should be a community theatre and its grass-roots, participatory work should be the best funded and the most valued. It often is already highly valued by participants and their family and friends, but less so by… the buildings in which the work actually takes place.’ At the Theatres Trust’s conference in April 2014, ‘Community Theatres’, it was really clear that those running theatre buildings completely value the work they do with communities. This varied depending on the type of theatre they were, where they were located, and their relationships with artists and communities. The full Conference report can be downloaded from the Theatres Trust’s website where there are many examples of communities valuing their theatres and the artists working with them. www.theatrestrust.org.uk/events/conference-14/welcome”
