Open Door Ignite

This Autumn award winning Initiative OPEN DOOR team up with Leicester Curve, Derby Theatre and Nottingham Playhouse to deliver three editions of our exciting new event IGNITE. Come along to our Q&A to learn more about employment opportunities within the film, television and theatre industry and fire questions at the people who are already doing it!

The creative industry currently employs over 3 million people which is 1 in 11 U.K jobs. We want to spread the word about the huge range of roles that exist within this sector, get you inspired and arm you with the info and inside tips you will need to pursue a career in this creative and inspiring industry.

Throughout the day, young people will be given the opportunity to learn about roles such as set designer, stage manager, camera operator, lighting designer, costume designer, actor, director, make-up artist, agent and casting director. They will be given the chance to meet people at the top of their game as well as participate in workshops and Q&A sessions. All of this will give them the opportunity to learn more about how to get started in a career in the film, theatre and television industries.
