The Stage Awards winners have officially been announced! ADF took home the Innovation Award for our work on diversifying boards.
In 2018 we launched an inaugural ADF Board Shadowing Programme: Yorkshire Edition, in partnership with five Yorkshire theatres: Sheffield Theatres, Leeds Playhouse, York Theatre Royal, Stephen Joseph Theatre and Hull Truck Theatre. In 2019 we were able to offer the programme in partnership with three leading London/UK theatre organisations; Complicité, English Touring Theatre and Punchdrunk at governance level.
The programme has resulted in trustee recruitment, as stronger understanding of boards, relationship building between creatives, buildings and organisations. The programme will continue to expand across the UK with a keen interest to include museums and dance companies in its future iterations.
