The National Theatre of Namibia (NTN) has proudly released the THEATRE PRACTICES AND BUSINESS IN NAMIBIA READER 2021 on 30 August 2021. The online reader is a compilation of perspectives by eighteen Namibian theatre and creative practitioners, offering recommendations on how emerging theatre artists could navigate theatre practices sustainably in the country.
Through interviews and written segments, the capacity-building reader includes an overview of some lived experiences in and around the Namibian theatre environment. Additionally, the publication sheds light on available opportunities for drama graduates, demystifies the viability and uses of storytelling skills, and offers recommendations on artistic applications for alternative sectors and industries in Namibia.
The contributors cover varied areas such as arts administration, working as a producer, professionalism and etiquette, branding and marketing, filling industry gaps, storytelling in sales and advertising, cultural management as well as careers in the corporate, wellness, research, and education spaces.
Targeted for emerging talents and students of theatre practices, the online reader aims to leave readers with critical considerations for professional development, career direction, and cross-sectoral application.
The reader is available for download at no cost, for the public here across the period of 24 months.
The publication is proudly supported by the National Arts Council of Namibia.
