We run a range of activities for directors across England who live and work outside London.

Some take place at the Young Vic and others are run in partnership with theatres we are either touring work to or have ongoing relationships with.

Go See Fund

If you live outside of London (in England) we can provide small Go See Funds to help with travel and accommodation expenses so you can take part in Young Vic activities and projects. 

We provide expenses for travel and accommodation so that opportunities like Jerwood Assistant Director scheme, Boris Karloff Trainee Assistant Director, Genesis Future Directors Award are accessible to directors outside of London. 


Our activities in London specifically for directors who are not based in the capital include: 

Open Day

A chance to meet with creative associates, have a tour of the three theatre spaces, hear about projects and initiatives such as the Jerwood Assistant Director Programme, see a matinee and take part in a question and answer session with a member of the creative team.

Intensive Weekend

A range of workshops over a weekend led by both our core team and outside practitioners including an opportunity to see a show at the Young Vic.


A two-week tailored placement observing day to day running of the theatre, attending planning and management meetings and spending time in departments such as marketing, production and development. Each placement is provided with a fee, and travel and accommodation expenses.

All of these opportunities are free and advertised through our Genesis Network.
