About Actors Pro Expo
Actors Pro Expo was set up by actors for actors to help and encourage them in all areas of their life as a professional actor. The convention falls into three sections – DEVELOP, SUSTAIN, and CREATE. Events run throughout the year and introduce actors to the various ways of making money outside the profession, using their craft to their advantage, ideas to develop their career; and different opportunities to create work.
Events will also focus on getting actors back into work after time away, photographers will be invited, small theatre companies and other industry related services will also have booths. The company was founded in the UK by actress Felicity Jackson, who, after building up various contacts in the promotional world and other well paid temporary sectors, decided to share this with the constant flow of struggling actors in a city where it shouldn't be impossible to survive. Following a run of successful events in London, Manchester & Edinburgh, the next step was New York. In the UK, the event is named “Surviving Actors,” and they have moved to the US doing business as “Actors Pro Expo.”
