Open Court

The Open Court Programme places at the heart of our practice; a space to spark and advance the creative potential in everyone. We are on a journey of evolving our work, centred around 8 key principles that underpin all our practice. We are aiming to create a ‘light’ and connected programme which responds with agility.​ Writers will continue to be threaded and embedded within all areas of the work​. ​ 

Our programme is made up of, ENCOUNTERS, SPACES, IMMERSIONS, RESOURCES, and THE PROJECT. We curate, co-create and deliver our work for and with young people and community groups, creating artistically ambitious collaborations with the Royal Court writers, artists, and the season of work. We strive to extend the reach of our work across the Royal Court and beyond.
