Raising The Game online: tickets now on sale!

Friday 26 June 2020

Raising The Game is NAYT’s annual training weekend for Youth Theatre practitioners aged 18+. RTG is an opportunity to take part in professional workshops to upskill your arts practise to ensure excellence is at the heart of Youth Theatre work. It’s also an opportunity to discuss inclusivity and accessibility in the Youth Theatre sector. 


This year due to the effects of COVID-19, NAYT are hosting a week of workshops and webinars online to support the sector going forward into autumn 2020. These workshops have been programmed and tailored to suit a digital and socially distanced way of working. In these challenging circumstances, we hope to still support the sector to be as artistic, playful, dynamic and inclusive as possible.


These workshops and webinars will take place 10-14th August using Zoom. After the event, all participants will be provided with a document summarising the workshop. The events are open to anyone who works with young people in the arts.


It is our hope to make these events as accessible as possible, including a subsidised ticket price. If you have access requirements, such as a BSL interpreter or require live transcribing, please get in touch at [email protected].
