Artistic Director Leadership Programme

2017-2019

tiata intervention: tiata fahodzi x 20 Stories High x Freedom Studios x Talawa Theatre Company

ARE YOU READY TO TAKE YOUR SEAT AND TAKE UP SPACE?

Who is curating the culture? Predominantly it is white, middle-class men.” David Oyelowo 

How many people of colour are running publicly funded theatre organisations in England? Not many. It’s time for change. 

tiata fahodzi brought together 20 Stories High, Freedom Studios and Talawa Theatre Company – companies whose collective missions represent a rich, multicultural and modern Britain –  to stage an intervention and lead the change. A change is gonna come but we’re not going to sit and wait.

We know that representation matters. We know difference leads to innovation, surprise, challenge, and originality. Like David Oyelowo, we believe that to achieve this diversity – of art, artists, workforce and audience – it must begin at the top. Natalie Ibu (Artistic Director & CEO, tiata fahodzi)

Artistic Director Leadership Programme was a two-year training programme for future theatre leaders which took place between 2017-2019. The programme was divided into two strands: Leaders of Tomorrow and Trainee Artistic Director residencies.   The progamme was delivered by 20 Stories HighFreedom StudiosTalawa Theatre Company and tiata fahodzi, supported by the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme (RTYDS) and Independent Theatre Council (ITC)
