THE COMMITTEE

If The Yard is the “future of theatre” (Time Out) and young people are the future, then we need you RIGHT NOW. 

The Yard is home to some of the most exciting theatre, parties, programme and activities in the UK. And we’re on the move. By 2022, The Yard will have built a brand new, bigger, better theatre to call home. And we need bigger, better ideas to fill it. And we think The Committee are the people to make this happen.

The Committee is The Yard’s group of arts activists, aged 15-19 years. Working fortnightly with two of the industry’s hottest producers, you’ll learn how arts venues are run and programmed, you’ll master the nuts and bolts of creative producing, event management and artistic decision-making. You’ll investigate the current issues facing the arts industry and generate ideas for change before working with your fellow members to lead on creating a brand new approach to programming for The Yard.

“The Committee is such a fulfilling and rewarding experience – I have made many really good friends and look forward to going every fortnight”

Applications to join The Committee have are now closed.
