#NoOneWay

Event Details 

We know that a career in the arts can still only seem a sustainable option for a certain kind of person. So, we’ve pulled together a group of writers, producers, directors, performers, and industry professionals to share their career journeys, in the hope of debunking some myths of what the stereotypical arts professional looks like.

Our No One Way with… events are weekly informal discussions led by those working in the arts, where they will share their story, offer advice and resources that helped them on their way, and listen to any stories of yours.

This week’s session is led by Nina Hajiyianni.

Nina is Artistic Director of Action Transport Theatre based in Ellesmere Port, one of the leading children and young people’s theatre companies in the England.

Nina has created challenging and original work for children and family audiences for 20 years+, Recent work includes Adrift (a refugee fairytale), The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps (with Murray Lachlan Young) and Happily Ever After (an LGBT dance/love story for 5+ audiences based on the book King and King). She has regularly directed the Unity’s Christmas shows in co-production with ATT (Beauty and the Beast, Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf, Princess and the Pea).

Nina will talk about the principles of creating child-centred work which aims to appeal to adults as much as children and what her creative process looks like. She will open up discussions about how might go about making meaningful work for our current time, from developing ideas to production.
