The Young Producers, run by China Plate and Warwick Arts Centre
Young Producers is a programme that has brought a group of 16-21 year olds together in an opportunity to not only learn the art of producing, but to work together and create a festival. Three students from your Theatre Department at Warwick University are actually part of this programme and would love for you to share it with your students.
Due to Covid-19, our initial idea had to be rethought. We are now putting on RECLAIMED - a three day digital arts festival by, with and for young people, to showcase three different art forms, Dance, Poetry, and Theatre.
For our theatre showcase, we are looking for 16-21 year old artists that already have created theatre, but haven’t had a chance to share it. The pieces can be between 2 and 15 minutes long. After watching all the pieces sent to us, the young artists who are chosen will have the opportunity to show their work as a part of our festival, be in with the chance of winning a £50 gift voucher (audience vote), have it introduced by an industry professional and speak to that professional in an exclusive online Q&A. We were wondering if you might know anyone who would be interested in this opportunity. This email is a call out for theatre submissions but feel free to browse our website for information on the poetry and dance submissions.
Further info can be accessed on our website and social media pages (https://bit.ly/YPReclaimed).
Deadline to send your application form (https://form.jotform.com/201383336001037) and submit your theatre video is 11:59pm Friday 5 June.
