Almeida Projects

Almeida Projects is the Almeida Theatre's community and learning programme. Inspired by the main-house productions, Projects deliver a range of high quality, innovative activities to make the theatre accessible to young people, inspire them creatively, and encourage an exploration of the power and potential of theatre. By opening up its doors to local young people, Almeida Projects aims to demystify the craft of theatre making and the act of theatre going.

Almeida Projects draws on all aspects of theatre, working with thousands of young people every year, and includes: a subsidised ticket scheme for schools, including introductory workshops and resource materials; residencies and durational projects in partnership with local schools and community groups; the Young Friend of the Almeida scheme, building sustainable, lasting relationships with the audience and artists of the future; regular Teachers' evenings, building durable and sustainable relationships with teachers and youth-workers from local schools and community groups; other bespoke projects that engage young people in the craft of theatre making and the act of theatre going.
