Women’s Network


Regional Voice Theatre are creating a support network for professional female artists active and working in the Midlands. Since establishing our company in 2014, we’ve been overwhelmed by the number of determined, talented Midlands-based women who apply and audition to work with us – a number far exceeding that of male performers. We know this imbalance doesn’t only apply to theatre, and that women in the creative sector are having to fight hard to employ their versatility as artists, and establish their careers. We want to respond to this with a network that supports women, connects women, and provides them with consistent opportunities to share and to work.

Whether you’re a theatre director, actor, painter, musician, dancer, choreographer, or writer – and are working professionally in your field, you’re welcome to apply for network membership.


Monday 14th May 2018 at The Arena Theatre (Wolverhampton)


The evening’s agenda will include discussions on:

  • what the network will offer, including scratch and share nights, regular network/hub meetings, and work opportunities
  • our next steps, including bids for funding
  • open floor- following our talk, we will take any questions. We’re very keen to find out what you really need, and how we can support your development.

We ask for £3-5 donation to attend, covering the cost of a two-hour session. The meeting will be lead by Helen Calcutt, and supported by Tina Barnes.

There will be free tea, coffee and cake. And of course, wonderful conversation! We can’t wait to see you there.

Please sign up to attend and find out more about our plans, and have your say. Deadline for sign-up is March 3rd 2018.
