Awenau is a scheme that will offer a training and mentoring opportunity to directors who are at the start of their careers, or who are already working in the sector but wish to change direction or extend their experience. The aim is to inspire prospective creative leaders of the theatre in Wales, and develop their skills, in order to help them to grab hold of the creative leadership reins. The scheme includes a varied programme of masterclasses with experienced theatre practitioners. It will also include an opportunity for everyone who is part of the scheme to work as an Assistant Director on one of the company’s productions, and an opportunity to direct a reading of a work in progress.
Awenau is supported by the Elinor Wyn Roberts Memorial Fund and Graham Laker Memorial Fund.
