TakeOver programme, produce and deliver an innovative theatre and arts festival at York Theatre Royal and across the city and this year’s programme will run during York Mediale.

Members of the York Mediale team are also involved in the support and mentoring of the TakeOver Senior Management Team, who have a diverse range of backgrounds, skills and experience, and who have recently been appointed. The focus for the programme of this year’s festival will be on heritage and heritage sites in York.

“We believe that through active participation, young people involved in the TakeOver project will pass on their legacy by creating new, dynamic pieces of art and theatre that will have an impact on the local community in York. We hope that it will improve the community’s relationship with historical sights and encourage people to view them as places that they can make the most of, as well as discover more about Media Arts and how art and technology can be used to combine the past and present to create exciting pieces.”
