Here at Paines Plough we’re always looking for ways we can demystify the processes behind touring new plays and provide support for theatre makers throughout their careers. We started our General Management workshop series in 2016 with an aim to introduce more people to the world of Arts Administration, and the huge variety of roles within in.
For the past three years we’ve met lots of people with an interest in taking their first step into Arts Administration. This year, we are focusing on those people who may have already secured their first job within the industry, but are curious about transitioning into the role of GM – either from a current administration role, or from another department. The workshop will look at what the role of a General Manager actually entails, and how our panel of current GMs got to where they are now.
So far we have confirmed panellists from The Bush Theatre, Hofesh Shechter Company, The Old Vic and Siobhan Davies Dance, with more due to be announced soon. Team Paines Plough will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have. The evening will consist of a discussion, Q & As and plenty of time to network before and after the event over drinks.
The workshop will take place on Monday 10 December 6.30-8.30pm, with registration from 6pm in the Paines Plough Rehearsal Room. We are located on 4th Floor, 43 Aldwych, London, WC2B 4DN.
If you would like to register for a place, apply here by 10am Wednesday 28 November.
We look forward to meeting you all soon.
