About Lauren Gardner :

A hardworking and organised personality has led me to achieve a great deal within my career. Since graduating with a first-class master's degree in Touring Theatre, I have contributed to the smooth and successful operations at Worcester Theatres.

Within my current role, my responsibilities spread over two departments, in marketing and outreach.

 
  • Marketing: I have valuable skills and experience in social media, press releases, website and online page updating, in communications, liaising with companies and performers. I am experienced in copy writing and designing.

 

  • Outreach: With just myself and one other member of staff, I am responsible for programming, organising and overseeing various events that we hold, as well as the management and administration for our Youth Theatre that is home to over 100 members. I am able to support in funding applications, as well as creating Education Packs and workshop planning and facilitating. 

In addition to experience with the production side of theatre, I am also a practising artist. In the last year I have performed in various venues and festivals including the Worcester Fringe and the Brighton Fringe with a number of productions I have created, written and performed.  My theatre practice often begins with a stimulus based in topics of injustice, creating with the mindset of connecting and conveying perspective. 

With experience in theatre and a passion for outreach work I am excited by bringing communities together and creating spaces and events that network people and provide support.
