Meet Josh - Drama Workshop Leader at Mind the Gap Theatre, Actor, Castaway member, Creative Transitions (CT) Workshop Leader and Disability Awareness Trainer. It's fair to say he keeps himself busy!
Josh came across Castaway via school work experience. He then joined the youth group ‘Shipmates’ (now Youth Theatre) progressing on to Castaway Main Theatre Company. The training Josh undertook at Castaway gave him a platform to be able to join the semi-professional theatre company, Engine Room Theatre, whereby he was invited to work as an Actor. Josh now works at Mind the Gap Theatre as a Drama Workshop Leader. He also currently volunteers with Creative Transitions (CT) and leads the drama section of our sessions, as well as supporting young people in the session with their creative work and developing the leadership skills of the young people attending.
In this photograph, Josh is seen talking to our CT Wednesday afternoon group about his arts pathway and work at Mind the Gap theatre, including explaining different accessible training routes available for acting and theatre.
Josh is a highly valued member of our staff team and we look forward to working with him throughout 2022, alongside our fantastic group of young people.
