How do we get new people involved in theatre?

Simon Hollingworth, 26 September 2012

We expose them to inspiration!

It's about proving and showing the value & worth of the arts… about ‘opening the door’ for people

About acknowledging what some of the barriers might be (people's perception, use of language, intimidating buildings)

About honesty

Its about education - the need to create demand and expectation so that more & more people ultimately insist on it as part of their lives - it becomes a right!

About taking work to non traditional spaces

But we also need to accept that we wont get everybody - and that's fine!
