Actor Callout - paid workshops

March 07, 2022

We are looking for actors to participate in five paid R&D workshops.

These R&D workshops will help our writer and director to create a piece of work that uses theatre and storytelling to educate international communities about cybersecurity issues.

More information about the Project

The project is creating a short (~15 minute) piece of theatre that can be recreated by community groups in developing countries, with accompanying discussion points. The aim of the piece is to bring to life important cybersecurity issues, raising awareness of the risks that come with using online services, but also instilling confidence. The R&D workshops will be led by the writer & director team who will use these workshops to help structure and refine their script.

You will be paid £11.05 an hour (London Living Wage) for your participation in the workshops.
