About the Directory

Activate Performing Arts directory aims to be a comprehensive, up-to date description of the ecology of all theatre and theatre-related activity in Dorset, and to give every one involved in that community a platform from which to showcase their work, skills and interests. By doing so we hope to nurture new and emerging artists and promote new connections and relationships within the community. You can personalise your profile with details of your projects as well as pictures, downloadable documents and embedded video.

What is the ACTIVATE directory?

The directory aims to map all theatre and theatre-related activity in Dorset.

What is it for?

The aim behind the directory is to give every one involved in Dorset’s theatre community a platform from which to showcase their work and skills. By doing so we hope to nurture new and emerging artists and promote new connections and relationships.

Who is eligible for inclusion in the directory?

The activateperformingarts.org.uk content guidelines are the reference point for what content is accepted where on the site. With reference to the directory they state:

“For directory listings this means that you or your organisation must have a Dorset address and be able to prove that you do the majority of your work here or that you are otherwise primarily involved with theatre activity in the County rather than elsewhere.”

If you need further information about whether we can list you in the Activate directory please do get in touch.
