Young Creatives Masterclass – Running a Theatre Festival
In this workshop, Alex Jackson will give a Masterclass introduction on branding, putting together and marketing a theatre festival. This Masterclass is created as part of the Young Creatives Programme, a programme designed to give young people in the southwest creative opportunities.
This workshop is for young people aged 17 – 21 and will be held online via Zoom.
Originally from Exeter, now based in London, Alex has a passion for theatre that is brave, bold, imaginative, and fun with entertainment at its heart. Theatre that will make you both laugh and cry, or cry with laughter. His approach as a director is to be candid, collaborative, and kind, sincerely valuing integrity and generosity.
Alex is Co-Founder and Festival Director of Exeter Fringe Festival, a Junior Associate at the King’s Head Theatre and co-creator of new musical theatre podcast All That Scratch. He also has a breadth of experience working across musical theatre, comedies, queer work and other plays.
