Keeping you connected

Kiln Insight is a programme of ways for you to keep in touch, learn more about, and get involved in our artistic output. From exclusive interviews, webinars and filmed content, there’s something for everyone.

These events are funded by the Kiln Community appeal, which means that we are able to offer everything for free and make sure as many people as possible are able to take part. Find out more about the Kiln Community appeal here.


Kiln Collaborations are a series of online panel discussions where theatre creators come together to share experiences, approaches and advice on how to navigate the theatre industry by sticking together and working collaboratively. Throughout the evening the panel will also discuss current difficulties facing theatremakers, how to plan and prepare for the future and answer any questions you may have. The events are free and will be via Zoom.
