Abstract

The Higher Education and Professional Theatre conference was a one-day event held at Curve Theatre, Leicester on September 10th 2015, hosted by De Montfort University and Curve Theatre with support from Arts Council England, UK Theatre, and the Independent Theatre Council.

The aim of the conference was to explore the growing number of developing relationships between professional theatres, arts venues and performance companies and higher education institutions in Britain, and facilitate discussions around models of these working partnerships.

The day brought together an array of academics, theatre practitioners, programmers, policy makers and students and opened a dialogue that debated its way through the delicate negotiations of creating successful working partnerships between the professional arts world and Higher Education institutions.

This report was commissioned by De Montfort university to document and discuss the issues that arose during the Higher Education and Theatre event hosted at Curve Theatre, Leicester in 2015.
