We are proud to announce that Jessica Draper, Head of Learning and Engagement at Synergy Theatre Project, has been awarded the Executive LTC MOBO Fellowship, alongside Daniel Kok, Arts Producer at Cambridge Junction and Nicholai La Barrie, Director of Young People at Lyric Hammersmith. The Fellowships begin in January 2018 for a 6-9 month attachment.
The London Theatre Consortium (LTC), in partnership with the MOBO organisation, have appointed a second cohort of three Executive LTC MOBO Fellowships to address the lack of diversity at executive level in UK theatre buildings. The fellows will work alongside LTC over a period of six months, getting access to and demystifying the Executive leadership of these 14 theatres.
The aim of the LTC MOBO Fellowships is to create the capacity for diversity in the leadership pool by supporting mid-career leaders and offering them mentoring, shadowing, access and skill sessions to help provide pathways to break through into Executive leadership.
