We are working closely with our new Artistic Director, Jemima Levick to expand and develop the Tron Participation offering. Participation projects and workshops for the autumn will be launched as part of the Autumn-Winter 2024 season.

We actively encourage participation from those that identify as belonging to under-represented characteristic groups.   Under-represented characteristic groups would include ethnicity, disability, sex (including gender, sexual orientation and gender identity) and socio-economic background. 

To help us deliver on our inclusion aims and ensure participants reflect the diversity of the cultural and economic landscape of Glasgow, we plan to deliver more sessions within the community, meeting and working with people new to the Tron.  By bringing together participants with a wide range of life experiences and perspectives, we can use creativity to learn from, about and with each other.

2024 Participation highlights so far:

Walking Tall Tales artists worked in Tollcross Park, Malls Mire Community Woodlands and Pirie Park Primary delivering our outdoor sensory storytelling project.  Little Imaginations went on big adventures using props, music, movement and song with nature as the backdrop.  Supported by Glasgow City Council Area Partnerships funding.

Tron Theatre Company’s production of Escaped Alone acted as inspiration for projects with different groups including workshops with Caledonia Primary School exploring themes of global citizenship; the creation and performance of two responses to Caryl Churchill’s text by Tron Young Company; Tron Studio’s Cup of Tea at the End of the World project and a series of Tronversations, including with community group People’s Past, People’s Future.

Tron Youth Theatre Seniors and Tron Ambassadors (work experience programme for young people in S4-S6) worked together on the performance project Lost.  Youth Theatre developed and performed the show, whilst our Ambassadors worked with the marketing department to create a poster image and manage the marketing campaign, successfully selling out all 3 performances.
