Invitation to apply to Regional Theatre Young Directors Scheme


Applications are now open for theatres to join the next round of the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme (RTYDS).


There are two programmes you can apply for in this round:


Introduction to Directing for groups of very early career directors

Apply for £2,000 to run an Introduction to Directing project for 5-10 people in their community.


A Three-Month Placement for individual early career directors

Apply for £4,000 to provide a young director with a three-month (full time or equivalent part-time) placement in their organisation.


RTYDS is especially keen to uncover talent that reflects the diversity of contemporary society, to support and nurture new and emerging directors and ideas from backgrounds and circumstances currently under-represented in artistic leadership of UK theatre.


The deadline to apply for both schemes is Monday 26th October 2015.


More detail, eligibility criteria and application forms are available on our website – www.rtyds.co.uk


If you would like to discuss your proposal before you apply please get in touch.


With best wishes
