Re:Con is Contact’s Young Programming and Producing Team. They help to decide what shows we have at Contact and work with us to produce their own events!



Re:Con originated in 2010. Each Re:Con cohort has delivered incredibly special and individual events, and have brought amazing pieces of work to our programme. Many past Re:Con members have gone onto great and varied careers in the arts – several as successful producers.   

“We increased our knowledge in artistic curation ten-fold. I gained invaluable experience in creative collaboration, teamwork, communication, and problem solving. I formed and maintained professional relationships across different organisations and funding bodies. I also learnt to understand the complexities around tying together the stakeholders’ opinions and supporting the artists’ final vision”.Lizzy Onwuka-Okyoe, Re:Con 2021 alumni (Assistant Producer at tiata fahodzi, the UK’s leading British African heritage contemporary theatre company)
