The Factory Youth Theatre

Women & Theatre want to recruit a paid support artist, to support a new project taking place from October 2018-March 2019.

Women & Theatre has over 30 years’ experience of working with diverse groups, creating engaging theatre and using interactive drama to promote the wellbeing of the whole community.  We work in a range of contexts across arts, health and education sectors with performances and projects delivered in community settings, hospitals, residential homes and theatres.

We will recruit a young leaders group of NEET Young People aged 16-25 who will be actively involved in the design, planning and delivery of a youth theatre programme for  younger people aged 11 upwards. The Young Leaders group, supported by W&T, will attend eleven workshop sessions through which they will be actively involved in the planning, marketing and facilitating of the youth theatre programme which will take place in February half term, culminating in a performance for friends, family and local people.


The Support Artist will work alongside the Lead Artist Practitioner Jo Gleave and General Manager Jess Pearson. They will be involved in the young leader sessions, supporting participants and helping create, document and monitor work.  They will help to support and facilitate the February half term youth theatre programme. They will be expected to participate in all project sessions and will be line managed by W&T Lead Artist Practitioner, Jo Gleave.
