If you couldn’t make our Theatre Maker Meet Up – Second Edition in November 2015 – or you just want to refresh your memory, here’re the videos – perfect for skilling up, getting inspired and taking a break from the paperwork off theatre making…

Paul Robinson is the artistic director of Theatre 503 which has been exalted by The Guardian as “arguably the most important theatre in Britain”

Alongside resident assistant producer Scott Barnet they take you through a little information about the theatre, what is does and what it can do for you as a theatre maker.

We’ve all witnessed the power of the crowd as a tool to raise funds (donated or invested) but how do actually do it?

Nadia Laabs from Call The Crowd has supported dozens of crowdfunding campaigns whilst running programmes for Ben and Jerry’s and the RSA. She’ll give you a run down of the pros and cons of running a campaign and all the important points to consider when trying to make your campaign fly.

Guy Wah is the founder of ZLS Theatre, a social enterprise. An alternative to charities or companies limited by shares, social enterprises are “businesses that trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances, or the environment.

They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, and they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community.”

Sound like you? Guy will explain why he chose this status for ZLS, what it entails and how it can benefit theatre makers.

Michael Obrizkiv is an internatinal speaker, teacher, designer and developer entrenched in both the Maker and Open Source movements.

He runs The Open Design School which teaches anyone and everyone graphic design and the growing importance of understanding it for web development.

He’ll be taking you through the fundamentals you need to be aware of when creating your visual matierals. He also designed the gobo logo which we’re very proud of!
