Introducing our startDIRECTING participants 2020!

Last week we announced that startDIRECTING would be going ahead this summer after your donations made it possible for us to continue with the scheme. Start is our new consolidated training scheme for young artists, which in its first year covers directors and designers. startDESIGNING will resume in spring 2021 alongside planning for next year’s summer season.

Our startDIRECTING cohort for 2020 will receive training directly from artistic director Paul-Ryan Carberry through the next few months via online seminars, and we’re also looking to find them placements as assistant directors once theatre reopens for business. For more information on Start, you can check out our website!

We’re still fundraising to keep Iris alive, and the best way to support us is to sign up to commit to giving to us monthly for as little as £2. You can do so on our Donorbox page here. Please consider giving to keep vital schemes like Start going for the next generation of theatremakers.
