Conference 14: Community Theatres
The Theatres Trust’s 8th annual conference, Community Theatres is open for bookings. Community Theatres takes place on Monday 28 April 2014 at the City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds.
Conference 14 looks at what makes a community theatre. As new ‘Community Rights’ give people more of a say on running their local communities, this year’s conference considers the role local groups increasingly play as providers of theatres and spaces for theatre in their localities, towns and villages. We’ll take a look at how to achieve appropriate scale capital projects that maintain buildings, meet delivery, design and funding expectations, and the inventive solutions used by groups to resolve building and ownership issues. These include listing theatres as Assets of Community Value, taking on Community Asset Transfers and raising funds through Community Shares and the Lottery.BACK
