Here’s a great opportunity for people of colour to break through in the theatre industry, through the Artistic Directors of the Future’s INNOVATORS project which is now open for submissions until October 8th,
ADF Innovators gives up to 10 ADF members the time, space and support to develop a project idea that aligns with the ADF mission – to improve the representation of people of colour in theatre leadership positions. Up to 10 practitioners will develop their project proposal and their entrepreneurial skills over a two-week online intensive programme, providing all with a viable proposal and strategy for realisation. One of these innovators will have their project selected. The successful candidate will work at ADF as an Associate Leader for one year. During this period the Associate Leader will pilot their dream project with the potential of creating a real impact across the sector. The remaining ADF Innovators will be invited to join the 12-week Think Tank: Agents of Change, leading up to an industry conference. These agents of change will present their solutions to industry problems to the key decision-makers within theatre and live performance organisations.
The project is open to ADF members only, so if you have not registered please do so before submitting your application. Please also be aware there is an INNOVATORS briefing session on 23rd September which should be attended to fully understand the requirements of this project.
