Wed 18 Mar - Wed 18 Mar 2020

The Royal Court Young Agitators are running a workshop to explore and interrogate the Climate Crisis through the lens of young people, a view which has been so prominent in Climate Activism.

This workshop aims to support young people to meet other young people who are concerned about the environment and build peer community support. To think together and find an emotional outlet to explore eco-anxiety whilst considering the suggestion that “Art does not Serve”; exploring creativity and making work in response to the crisis.

“Art does not Serve” is a provocation from Zoe Svendsen’s Dramaturging the Climate Crisis.

The Royal Court Young Agitators are theatre curators and creatives aged 16 – 23 who are interested in routes outside of performing. Selected annually the Young Agitators engage in an eight month programme which integrates them in to the heart of the building, builds a deep knowledge of the Royal Court, encourages arts activism, supports the development of theatre makers and provides pathways into the industry. The Agitators all receive dramaturgical training (similar to our Script Panel), facilitation skills, invited into rehearsals and techs of shows and expertise workshops with industry professionals.
