Creating Routes is a free, practical, training programme for Global Majority theatre makers and creatives who want to use their artistic skills in community settings. This programme is a collaboration between Talawa Theatre Company, Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) and Goldsmiths University of London.
As a collective we have come together to help to diversify the participatory arts sector with artists from different cultural backgrounds. Our aim is to provide an alternative route into entering the sector, one that strikes a balance between the practical and the theoretical. Creating Routes trainees get the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and experience needed to gain employment in Participatory Arts sector.
