Education and engagement are core to Pilot's work across all its platforms whether it is devising and delivering production based workshops in schools or running a research and development project alongside our digital innovation programme.All members of staff and creative teams are involved so that it remains integral to the organisation.
Pilot deliver a varied and extensive education programme working with school students, teachers, young people and adults on a range of activities from conferences to training to practical workshops to residencies. All these give us time and opportunity to engage with our audiences to both develop our own work artistically through a better understanding of their concerns and interests and to explore the ways in which content is delivered as well as giving participants opportunities to make creative work themselves.
Recent initiatives have included skype sessions to allow the director and other members of the creative team to be "on stage" with the actors for post show discussions and looking how we can use platforms such as twitter to write new work as well as interact and engage with people who may not be in the same real space as ourselves. Blogs and other forums, alongside free online resources also allow both an evaluation of our practice and an ongoing commitment to give our audiences as much information as possible about our processes of making work.
