Voluntary Arts Toolkit

In collaboration with Voluntary Arts, NODA has created a toolkit to help members make the most of local broadcasters.Local broadcast media can provide members with the chance to spread the word about amateur theatre, to showcase their work and to attract audiences.

This toolkit includes helpful case studies that show what can be achieved by broadcast media, and will hopefully make it easier for members to share their passion for amateur theatre and help build audiences and can be downloaded below in the downloads section.
Getting involved could help your group find new members and audiences, and will allow you to promote yourself within your local community and provide a great benefit to that community. If you're interested and are thinking about putting on an event, you can download Voluntary Arts Top Tips document for inspiration in the downloads below.
