Arts Council England Theatre Assessment 2008

Arts Council England is inviting contributions for its Theatre Assessment 2008, a study into the impact of the additional £25 million of public spending secured for theatre since 2003.

The Assessment will cover a wide range of theatre practice, including text-based work, experimental theatre, physical theatre, puppetry, musical theatre, street arts and circus; building based and touring organisations, work for children and young people, including youth theatre, participatory theatre and diversity.

It will be carried out by independent consultants Anne Millman and Jodi Myers, with the support of their advisors, Pippa Bailey, Patrick O'Kane and Kully Thiarai. They are working closely with Barbara Matthews and Isobel Hawson from Arts Council England's Theatre Strategy team.
