Visionari: A new initiative to give our community a voice

Visionari: A new initiative to give our community a voice

Visionari: A new initiative to give our community a voice.

We are looking for an initial group of people aged 16 and over to be our first advisory programming group.  

You will spend a year with us learning about the theatre, why it exists and how it operates through ten workshops which will be led by York Theatre Royal staff. Workshops will be based on topics about the hows and whys of theatre making. Each session will take place prior to a performance, will be about one hour long and will generally be on the first Wednesday of each month. Throughout the year you will be attending workshops and performances both here at York Theatre Royal and at other theatres in the region. 

Following the initial year as a group you will become a Visionari. Your role will be to guide, challenge and inform our programming decisions. Meetings will be less frequent - probably six times a year.

We want our theatre to reflect our community and to ensure that its ideas and thoughts are deeply embedded in the work we make and present. The Visionari will be selected through application and will be formed to reflect the diverse world in which we live and work. Over the coming years the group will be expanded to ensure that we genuinely reflect the wider community. The initial commitment would be for a minimum of two years. 

We are initially looking for 20 people who are regular, irregular and importantly non-theatre attenders. From age of 16 and up we will consider any applicant and would like to encourage those who feel that theatre isn’t for them to come and get involved.

Application forms are available HERE or from our box office and need to be submitted by Monday 30 October 2017. We also ask that you complete an Equal Opportunities Monitoring form HERE and attach it to your application.Shortlisted applications will be invited to attend an informal group interview.

The first Visionari gathering will be in January 2018.

This is a free offer and you will receive free York Theatre Royal membership throughout your first year as a Visionari.
