Future Makers: the future is now!


If you're aged 14-19, live in the Sheffield area and have a keen interest in theatre or film (or both) FUTURE MAKERS is for you!

International touring theatre company Third Angel and award-winning film professionals have teamed up to offer taster workshops and practical advice on careers in theatre and film.

Running in the school holidays, FUTURE MAKERS is absolutely free and open to anybody between 14-19 years with an active interest in the arts.  Each full day workshop focuses on one area of theatre or film. We'll cut through the jargon, give each workshop a strong practical element to give you an idea of what it's like in the real world, and provide advice on how to get into either of these industries.

You can attend one workshop or more, and you need to apply to secure your place.

Wednesday 26th October – Introduction to working in Film

Easter Holidays

Where From Here Symposium Line Up

Where From Here: 21 Years of Third Angel
A one day Symposium hosted by Leeds Beckett University and Compass Live Art
Headingley Campus, Leeds
Thursday 17 November, 10am - 6.30pm (followed by drinks)
FREE - but advanced book advised: click here.

We are delighted to announce the line up for Where From Here, our 21st anniversary symposium.
The day's papers will reflect on the past, present and future of Third Angel, and explore the territory of work we have inhabited and influenced over the years, from making live art, durational performances and video art through to our theatre making practice and collaborations with other artists. It's also a chance celebrate Third Angel's longevity and place this into context in the current political, economic and artistic climate.
The programme for the day includes performances, short films, presentations and papers; it will be of interest to performance academics, teachers and students, plus audience members interested in finding out more about the work. We're thinking of it as something in between a symposium and a one-day festival. So we are very pleased that with the support of Leeds Beckett University's School of Film, Music and Performing Arts, the Symposium is free to attend.
The final line up is still being confirmed, but we are very pleased that Where From Here will feature contributions, presentations and performances from artists and academics including:
  • Aletia M Badenhorst
  • Oliver Bray
  • Gillian Dyson 
  • Lucy Ellinson 
  • Christopher Hall
  • Caroline Horton & Dr Jacqueline Taylor
  • Andrew Jeffrey
  • Alexander Kelly
  • Gillian Jane Lees & Adam York Gregory
  • Dr Hannah Nicklin
  • Michael Pinchbeck & Linford Butler
  • Henry Raby
  • Jodean Sumner

The full schedule will be announced later in October. 
Where From Here: 21 Years of Third Angel is convened by Oliver Bray, Alexander Kelly, Michael Pinchbeck and Hannah Nicklin. Compass Festival of Live Art runs 11-20 November 2016.
