PhD opportunity with the University of Leeds and Northern Ballet

Northern Ballet has partnered with the School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds on a new PhD opportunity researching innovative approaches to ballet audience development with young Asian communities.

The research engages with the challenges involved in developing and sustaining audiences for ballet through investigation of the use and value of diversity initiatives in school-based projects. 

Focused on an established partnership between Northern Ballet and Green Lane Primary School in Bradford, the research seeks to evaluate the design and impact of outreach partnerships developed and integrated into curriculum delivery.

The research will provide opportunities to explore the changing landscape of participation across diverse audiences, and contribute to the strategic framework for the future development of education initiatives and audience development programmes.

The University of Leeds are looking for highly qualified, enthusiastic candidates with academic and/or professional interests or experience in the development of culturally diverse audiences.

Applications close on Friday 21 December 2018.
