The Alex Evans Fund is working towards making Herefordshire a place where world-class theatre and performance can flourish.
To do that, it is essential that local talent has access to high-quality training, and the opportunity to practice and develop skills.
The first step towards this vision is under way.
The newly launched Powerhouse Academy began working with its first intake of students in February 2018.
In addition to running courses in acting and performance skills, it aims to offer coaching in professional communication, confidence and public speaking.
Classes are balanced for the complete beginner and those wishing to build upon previous experience.
The courses are the first stage of a long-term vision to develop affordable access to training and skill development in Herefordshire.
But it needs your help.
We are looking to develop an innovative, community-based model of funding; seeking local businesses to sponsor individual student placements for those aged 17 to 35 years old.
If you are interested in supporting young people in Herefordshire to develop their confidence and creativity, please get in touch here.
