Actors Exchange is a developing new strand of work which has begun in direct response to a recognised sector need - supporting people who are experiencing barriers to accessing quality acting training and skills development, especially from a D/deaf, disabled, ethnic and socio-economic background.
The D/deaf and Disabled Actors Exchange meet regularly and receive bespoke, informal masterclasses to provide them with skills to boost their employment chances and open up professional pathways and networks. Join the Facebook Group
In Spring of 2018, the Royal Exchange Theatre will be the regional partner of ALT. (Actors Learning Training). ALT. is a unique opportunity for a nation-wide scheme supporting first time participants in theatres from disadvantaged backgrounds across the UK. This scheme brings a cohort of 10 young people from low-income backgrounds, with a priority to BAME ethnicity, to experience actor training in a risk-free and supportive environment for the first time.

Actors can also join the Open Exchange network to access workshops or developmental opportunities to collaborate with other artists, directors and theatre-makers.
