Creating Routes 2022


Creating Routes is a FREE practical training programme for BAME theatre makers who want to use their creative skills in community settings (e.g. working with groups in schools, community organisations, health settings, criminal justice etc.)

Over 20 trainees have been recruited for this exciting programme; a collaboration between Talawa Theatre Company, Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) and Goldsmiths University of London.

As a collective we have come together to help to diversify the participatory arts sector with artists from different cultural backgrounds. Our aim is to provide an alternative route into entering the sector, one that strikes a balance between the practical and the theoretical. Creating Routes trainees get the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and experience needed to gain employment in Participatory Arts sector.

Creating Routes alumni have gone onto work with: London Bubble Theatre Company, Young Vic, Birmingham REP, Imperial War Museum, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Battersea Arts Centre and of course EEA and Talawa.

We can't wait to see what exciting things these new Creating Routes trainees produce.
