Young Changemakers

ABOUT US

We are the Young Changemakers; we love theatre, and we’re passionate about bringing young people back to it.

OUR MISSION is to spend the year devising plans and projects that we think will engage young people.

SO FAR we have created an online social media presence, sharing who we are, our future plans and asking young people their thoughts about theatre. We have hosted our first Up-Close event (with 18-25 year olds) centred around Douglas Rintoul’s production of ‘Macbeth’.

NEXT We are planning a library full of play-texts and want to encourage use of the theatre as a safe drop in space to be creative, read plays for free and connect with other like-minded individuals. We’re also planning more Up-Close events and are curating a summer project – a series of important conversations and provocations about identity within our communities and how we are represented by theatre makers!

At the moment we are made up of five individuals, all from different backgrounds, all living and studying/working in Outer East London and Essex. We are looking for 3-4 new people who share our ambitions and want to be part of the team. If you are aged 18-25 and would like to get involved, please send either a 50 word statement, or short video clip or voice note, explaining why you’d be interested in taking part to: Youngchangemakers@queens-theatre.co.uk

Deadline: 7 August

Hannah is an actress. Most recently she has become a National Youth Theatre member after doing their Epic Stages course last summer and in January 2020 appear in The Scene, a festival of new writing at the Chiswick Playhouse with GetOverIt productions. She also writes spoken word and will perform two of her pieces as part of The Vaults Festival 2020. Having grown up in Romford and having all her early engagement with the arts being in Essex, she is passionate about being part of the Young Changemakers as ‘sometimes you can be made to feel like all art has to be created in London and while it’s great, there is so much going on outside of that bubble. The Queen’s Theatre is a great space and important to make young people in Essex feel like the arts are accessible to them’.
