TheatreCraft flies in to the Waldorf Hilton Hotel
on Monday 19 November
for an exciting marketplace of exhibiting theatres, education providers and theatre organisations. Teaming up with nearby West End venues and the greatest theatre minds from across the galaxy, the team will be running loads of super workshops including directing, producing, stage management, make up, design, marketing, lighting, prosthetics and casting to name just a few.
More than a careers fair, TheatreCraft remains entirely free and offers attendees the opportunity to take part in dynamic workshops led by leading industry professionals, explore the vibrant marketplace of exhibiting arts organisations and education providers, connect with peers and potential employers through various networking opportunities and speak with experts in one-to-one advice sessions.
For the first time, the event is open to 16-30 year-olds (instead of 16-25 as in past years), in acknowledgment of the necessity to provide services for people changing career as well as entering the sector.
Behind-the-scenes roles in theatre can often go unrecognised, but this year TheatreCraft is championing theatre’s heroes-in-hiding to highlight the extraordinary skillsets and roles available within the industry, and inspire a whole new generation to consider offstage career opportunities in the theatre.
Kadhija Raza, who attended TheatreCraft in 2015 and is part of the poster campaign for 2018, said:
“TheatreCraft is so important for young people to learn about the multitude of roles that exist within theatre. When I attended in 2015 I completely fell in love with all aspects of theatre design, so it's great to be representing designers for TheatreCraft this year.”Booking is now open for TheatreCraft, which returns to the Waldorf Hilton Hotel on Monday 19 November 2018.
