Made in Bristol
Made In Bristol is a group of twelve young people aged 18-25 on some sort of gap year – be it having graduated from university, finished school or being in part time employment – who become resident at Bristol Old Vic for two days a week for one year.
Made in Bristol is designed to give young theatre-makers an opportunity to train together, to become workshop leaders, facilitators and theatre makers, creating work that can reach out across Bristol and the South West, engaging with other local arts organisations as well as performing their own piece of work at the end of the course.
It has allowed me to foster my creativity in the environment of the working theatre.
