Throughout the year Artistic Director Charlotte Bennett will undertake continuous research into how FTP creates social change and long-term impact in communities -and reassess the model we use to facilitate this. This will include 4 main areas of investigation:
Participant and community research – looking at motivations for communities to work with arts organisations as well as the barriers to this.
Artistic experimentation – looking at how FTP create work which reflects different communities voices on their local stage.
Researching other models: Observing other community-driven models both in the arts sector and beyond.
FTP-Venue relationship: Working with Cast to explore what this could mean and how this could transfer to other venues in the future.
