Re:Con is Contact’s pioneering initiative that invites 4 young people each year to join either our programming or producing team.

If you are interested in programming, and are keen to gain a unique insight into how a professional theatre chooses the artistic productions it shows on stage. If you want to develop the skills and confidence to become a cultural leader in the future, then Re:Con Programming is for you.

If you are interested in working as a creative collective in developing your ideas and turning them into an artistic event, then Re:Con Producing is what you want.

Previous Re:Con members have gone on to amazing roles as artists, producers, programmers and theatre directors.
