How can we centre young people in cultural organisations?

**Waiting list only**

This session was selected as part of our Open Call to practitioners and organisations to host an event for ‘What value culture?’.

Facilitated by Rebecca McGreevy and Francesca Robson, Pilot Theatre’s Young Creatives, this interactive online workshop will explore the role of young people as decision-makers and evaluators in the activities of cultural organisations.

Participants will be invited to share approaches of supporting young people as consultants and creators, and to explore the range of cultural values held by young people today.

As research in action, the Young Creatives will devise and deliver this event, along with the premiere of a new artistic experience created by them.

Pilot Theatre is an international touring company creating work for, by and with young people, based in York.

Francesca Robson

Hello, I’m Frankie! And I’m currently working as a freelance facilitator and creator, focusing my projects on important and poignant social change within and around marginalised communities.
I studied theatre at the University of Warwick and this is where my passion for community arts grew. After graduating, I continued to connect the dots between the arts and underrepresented communities. My previous work has highlighted social inequality whilst collaborating with vulnerable and segregated adults, some of my work has been co-created with: The Salvation Army, Crisis, Underground Lights and many other charities and organisations. I wish to continue to break down the barriers that surround the arts, constantly working to make theatre more accessible and attainable.
