Hackney Empire Educational Visit

The Year 8 Grinch arts admin team went on a tour of the Hackney Empire (with teachers Ms Farrelly, Miss Smith and Ms Thompson) and met Yamin their Artistic Director and Joint CEO and Mekel, Production Manager for Lift Festival came in and gave a talk to the students which was incredibly inspiring. They started thinking about marketing and will now be thinking of two ideas of how to market their show to their target audience.

This was a fantastic opportunity for the students (who also visited the Arcola last week) to learn about different arts organisations within the community, how they interrelate and the various job roles that are available within the performing arts industry.
