What we doCreating Routes

Creating Routes is a FREE facilitator training programme. Open to the Global Majority theatre-makers and creatives aged 18+, with or without participatory arts experience. 

If you are interested in working with groups in schools, community organisations, health settings or the criminal justice system then Creating Routes is for you.


This programme is a collaboration between Talawa Theatre Company, Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) and Goldsmiths, University of London. As a collective we have come together to help 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 theoretical. Creating Routes trainees get the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and experience needed to gain employment in the Participatory Arts sector.  

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