Genesis Directors Network

The network provides an invaluable forum for members of the Directors Program to share their experiences and seek advice. Directing can be lonely - particularly in the early stages of a career - and the network encourages a sense of community and peer support. Through the website, members can also find information about current activities, opportunities and special ticket offers.

Independent producers, theatre companies and writers often use it as a way to find directors for their projects. Many theatres - including the Lyric Hammersmith, the Globe and Cheek by Jowl - circulate special offers for free or discounted tickets to shows and events. Annual opportunities such as bursaries, traineeships and masterclasses are also publicised through the network.

There are currently over 700 members, with more people joining all the time. The majority of the Young Vic Directors Program activities are advertised through the Genesis Directors Network.
