Since launching in 2020, Freelancers Make Theatre Work has worked with freelancers to create free, online, peer to peer opportunities. From weekly Tea Breaks to Monday morning vocal warm ups (Dawn Chorus) to Zoom boxing sessions, we know that these spaces offer a crucial opportunity to be in community with other freelancers and have offered some practitioners a space to try out new ideas or explore their practice.
Freelancers Make Theatre Work are eager to continue offering workshops, sessions or social spaces for UK freelancers. We want to build a programme of no cost activity to support the wellbeing of the UK freelance theatre community and we need your help!
Do you have an idea for a session or a meeting that you would like to deliver at no cost to the freelance community through our platform? Whether it is a weekly mindful movement class, a series of accent workshops or a one off social activity (did someone say Bingo?!).
Or do you know of great online sessions that are already happening at no cost? Please let us know so we can add them to our website!
Are you a proficient Zoom host, who could cover an online session each week to make sure the tech runs smoothly? We understand that freelancer schedules may be changeable, so we create easy to follow rotas for volunteers who cannot commit to a regular time each week.
Are you organised and interested in volunteering time to undertake some of the basic administration involved in making these events happen? This will generally mean creating volunteer rotas, making sure Zoom links are shared with hosts, collating numbers of attendees and sending FMTW’s website manager any updates required.
You can find out more and register your interest right here on our new 'Volunteers' page.
We'll be updating the page in the coming weeks with other volunteering opportunities with Freelancers Make Theatre Work.
