In 2016 Youth Theatre Arts Scotland (YTAS) launched two new Forums to support sector and art form development. The forums are for experienced Youth Theatre Directors and Managers who want to push their own practice and work with other professionals on sector-wide opportunities.
The Forums take place bi-annually and include a specialist masterclass or case-study, networking and a facilitated exchange session. The fee to attend the Forums is minimal (or free in some cases). YTAS hopes these new Forums will be an exciting place where Scotland's Youth Theatre Directors and Managers can meet to inspire their work and influence national developments.
The next 'Managers Forum' will take place on Thursday 11th May, 11:30 – 4pm at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh.
The morning briefing and discussion will be hosted by Suzanne Miller from the Cultural Enterprise Office (CEO). During the session Suzanne will unpick the skills relevant to a modern creative manager, including practical guides and resources availble on writing strategy, financial forecasting and managing a team.
Managers at the Forum will identify strategies for the ongoing development of their skills with Suzanne and CEO. They will also be encouraged to share their own skills and resources, as part of the Forum's aim to develop peer support across the youth theatre sector.
After lunch the Forum will review and progress some of the 'audience development' ideas devised at the previous meeting.
The 'Managers Forum' is free for YTAS Members to attend, £10 for Non-Members.
There are only 20 places available for the Forum so interested professionals are encouraged to book early.
YTAS gratefully acknowledges support from Cultural Enterprise Office and the Festival Theatre.
