Emerging Youth Theatre Leaders - Training Day

Emerging Youth Theatre Leaders - Training Day

The role of the youth theatre leader is a very varied one that has many elements to it.
Youth Theatre Ireland is delighted to announce a one day training seminar for emerging leaders taking place on Wednesday June 20th.

Participants will discover the fundamentals of leadership in a youth theatre context.
They will also learn some new approaches to developing their own leadership skills in this interactive one day training event.

The training day will include:

• Exercises exploring the fundamentals of leadership.
• An investigation of leadership specifically in a youth theatre context.
• An introduction to the online Young Leaders Resource Suite and the Youth Arts Mentoring Toolkit.
• Space to reflect on your own leadership styles and techniques.
• An opportunity to network, share your experiences and develop links for the future

Who is the training aimed at?

The programme is open to any emerging leaders aged 18+ including:

• Junior leaders stepping up from being youth theatre members,
• New youth theatre leaders,
• Established youth theatre leaders who are supporting junior/new youth theatre leaders,
• Individual youth theatre practitioners who are interested in starting a youth theatre or becoming a youth theatre leader,
• Representatives from other youth arts organisations who are interested in developing leadership skills.

This event coincides with the recent launch of the Young Leaders Resource Suite. This is an online, accessible collection of multi-media resources designed to inspire and support the development of young and emerging leaders. It was developed as part of Creative Commons; a collaboration between Youth Theatre Ireland and Youth Theatre Arts Scotland (YTAS), co-funded by the Erasmus + programme of the European Union.

The training day will be facilitated by Youth Theatre Ireland's Dave Kelly and Alan King.
Places are free but limited. Travel expenses, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
