Feedback From Current Tron 100 Members
The most important thing Tron 100 brings is support. A face in the industry to share your ideas with that is willing to lend a hand or point you in the right direction. Space to share and develop your skills. A meeting place where you feel you are welcome and belong, where you are not feeling judged by “what are you up to at the moment” but are asked “What do you want to do now and how can we help.” I genuinely think it is the best thing to happen to our community in years.
As an actor born, bred and based in Glasgow, I have never really been able to access the same sort of networking and learning opportunities as my London counterparts, so the Tron 100 Club is an incredibly welcome innovation.
The best art is often the product of collaboration, and encouraging artists to develop, both personally and professionally, within an inspiring artistic community such as the Tron 100 Club is a fantastic resource for artists at any stage in their career.
Sometimes working in theatre can be a lonely. Standing in front of closed doors, wondering how to get that door opened and then what to do if that door opens. The Tron Theatre has always led by example, producing brilliant and exciting work, as well as programming and supporting emerging artists. And now the Tron 100 wonderfully opens the doors to artists, opens the door to opportunities to learn, to network, to discover, to collaborate, to inspiration and to find who we are as artists.
