VISIONARI is our community programming group. They meet regularly at York Theatre Royal with our staff and their role is to guide, challenge and influence our programming decisions and the work we develop and present on our stages.

What it is:

The group 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 how’s 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 attend workshops and performances both here at York Theatre Royal and at other theatres in the region. 

Following the initial year as a group of learning and understanding, the 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 were selected through application and 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. The group will programme performances and events as part of a festival (dates TBC).
