Creative Assembly

We invite you to be part of a hugely exciting new approach to our work!

We want everyone to feel welcome at Norwich Theatre, but we know that some people might not see themselves represented on our stages or might feel like they don’t belong. We believe creativity is great for everyone, and we need your help.

Whether you are an artist, central to your community, a young person looking to get into leadership or someone who likes to open up conversations, we want you to be involved in steering our future.

We have set up a collaboration of five creative groups, which together are called Creative Assembly. Each group in the Creative Assembly has its own focus and will bring its own ideas and creativity to help shape the direction of Norwich Theatre. Together, the Creative Assembly will transform decision making at Norwich Theatre and enhance communities’ integration into the life of the theatre.


We are now inviting applications for two of our Creative Assembly groups!

We’ll need to hear from you by 8 Apr 24

  • Creative and inquisitive
  • Committed to access, diversity and inclusion
  • Highly motivated and proactive

Do you want to speak up for your community? Let’s connect

We believe creativity is great for everyone, and need your help to share the joy of getting creative within your community.

As a Community Connector, you will be the bridge between Norwich Theatre and your community, letting us know what is important to you, like the kinds of stories you want to hear and the ways you want to get involved.

We are looking for people who are:

  • Part of a community: perhaps you volunteer at a group, or work in library or children’s centre. Maybe you work in a café, or work for a charity. Your community might meet at a place of worship, or meet for a coffee every week
  • Confident talking to people, sharing information, and acting as a voice for your community
  • Over 18 years old
  • Resident in, or live close to Norwich
  • Passionate about increasing representation and promoting the power of creativity in your community

Norwich Theatre’s Creative Assembly

Two groups are already established: Young Cultural Leaders which offers young people aged 18-30 the opportunity to gain practical skills and learn how to help shape and define leadership, with a longer term ambition of representing young people within Norwich Theatre’s governance structure, on the board of trustees and the boards of local partner organisations; and Creative Advisory Group which empowers freelance artists to consult and advise on strategic decisions and challenges within the arts sector.

The fifth group will be an Associate Company, which will be announced in March. They will be co-investigating the creative experience with Norwich Theatre and create new work.
