The Playhouse is one of the most vibrant and loved arts centres in Northern Ireland. Established in 1992 we are here to create community, celebrate diversity and empower people through the arts.
We are a global leader in using the arts to build peace, an award winning producing theatre – pioneering and showcasing new work across both real and virtual worlds – and use the arts and education to address deep rooted social issues and promote personal development and well-being.
We matter to our locality, to the global communities we connect with, and the many diverse groups and individuals we engage with.
We work as a community, for the community, employing our creativity and imaginations to continually innovate and give of our best in order to offer a space to make meaning and a space that’s here for good.
Why The Playhouse is supporting Boardroom Apprentice
We have been a part of this programme over a number of years now and have always found it to be a positive contribution to our governance. We are also keen as an organisation to provide apprentice opportunities across our work, so it is very natural to continue that into our Board. We value the diversity of ideas and experience it brings and the opportunity to be introduced to potential future board members.
