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.
