MAKING CONTACT: OUR TRANSFORMATION Find out more

Interested in deciding what shows we have at Contact and working with others to produce your own event? RE:CON, Contact’s Young Programming and Producing Team, could be for you!

RE:CON is Contact’s pioneering initiative that invites four young people each year to join our programming team, directly shaping and influencing our artistic programme. Get the chance to travel around the country to see work on behalf of Contact and let us know what you think!

As a member of RE:CON you will learn key skills in programming and producing, gaining a unique insight into how a professional theatre develops its public programmes, as well as developing the skills and confidence to become a cultural leader of the future.

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

    ‘RE:CON gave me the boost that I needed to begin a career in the arts. I gained countless skills and grew an incredible network over the year. Since finishing the programme, I have worked exclusively in the arts.’

    Rowan, Artist and Facilitator

      ‘RE:CON was undoubtedly the catalyst to my career as a Producer. Being supported throughout to explore your creative voice and most importantly, the licence to make decisions and representing Contact, was for me, a career changing year that made me pursue it professionally.’

      John Tomlinson, Associate Producer, York Theatre Royal
