Blueprint 2


    a training programme for emerging producers

    We have recruited 8 people to learn from us for a year: developing their skills in producing and programming theatre. The trainee producers will meet regularly taking part in focussed skills workshops, whilst learning from the TFT Arts Team.

    As a part of their learning they will curate and programme an event that take place at TFT. Embedded into our programming team, there will be opportunities to see shows, both locally and nationally and select work for our programme. It is our aim to ignite and support the trainee producers and hope that in turn, we too will be inspired and guided by their ideas.

    We are proud to be offering this training FREE of charge, and hope that by doing so we will create pathways into the industry for people no matter their financial situation.

    At a glance:

    • Fortnightly workshops in producing and programming skills (3 hours per workshop)
    • Opportunities to see shows and feed into our programming (all related expenses paid by Tobacco Factory Theatres)
    • The trainee producers will curate a scratch festival in 2023, this will involve some additional commitments equating roughly 3 days
