Youth Advisory Board

A space to think boldly and dynamically about driving CFT towards a diverse, inspiring and exciting future


We believe positive change can be ignited by young people. We endeavour to create an atmosphere where debate and collaboration is celebrated, where young people’s voices are heard and where there is the space and opportunity to think boldly and dynamically about how best to drive CFT towards a diverse, inspiring and exciting future.

In 2020, CFT launched its first ever Youth Advisory Board. The Board aims to:

  • Identify and champion ways in which CFT can become a more welcoming, inclusive, diverse and innovative organisation for young people
  • Generate fresh, bold ideas in order to help the Theatre actively move forwards in ensuring that the spaces and the programming excite, inspire and resonate
  • Advocate for the voice of young people in theatre and the creative industries

The YAB meets several times a year and engages in a two-way conversation with the Board of Trustees and CFT staff on how best to make the Theatre an inviting and exciting place for young people.
