In with an Urban Shout??? Vote TODAY for NYT!
Date: 7 April 2006
The National Youth Theatre, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year (See News, 29 Mar 2006), is down to the final three in a people’s lottery being run by GMTV. NYT’s Urban Shout has been selected as one of the projects now being voted on by the public for a chance to £1.5 million in funding. The project will invest in disused public spaces in Brighton, London, the Black Country and Glasgow, converting them into inclusive places for local people to build common values. Developed, operated and owned by local people, each ‘event space’ will aim to be a truly open, free location for local amateur arts organisations, professional touring companies, DJs, buskers, bands, artists and street theatre performances and for screened events. If successful in winning the public vote, NYT will prepare the project over the next 12 months and officially launch it in April 2007. An NYT spokesperson said: “National Youth Theatre's Urban Shout initiative is an exciting and innovative youth-led vision, to create event spaces for local communities across the UK. It is a great legacy for the NYT's 50th anniversary year that benefits local communities and thousands of disadvantaged young people.” Voters should call 0870 062 1302 or text ‘B’ to 84070 now, with a maximum of ten votes accepted from any phone number. Lines are open for 24 hours only from today - closing at noon on Saturday. The winner will be announced on GMTV on 10 April 2006.
