Missing Link Arts was founded in 2020 and is a non- profit arts organisation aiming to bridge the gap between aspiring actors from underrepresented backgrounds and the industry.
The first phase of our mission is our Website: a place to go for people who want to get into acting and don’t know where to start.
There is information on:
- All UK Drama Schools partnered with the Federation of Drama Schools. These are listed in alphabetical order and include details such as how to apply, how much it costs, if audition fee waivers are available, information for disabled applicants and much more. It felt important for us to provide a resource for prospective applicants where all of this information was in one place.
- Self Taping For Drama School Auditions. Tips from working actors and drama school audition panels for those who don’t have any experience of self-taping.
- Acting Groups in Yorkshire and London. These are divided into North, South, East & West. We only add groups that have been recommended to us, and we detail who can join, how to join and the cost. We prioritise groups that are affordable.
- Initiatives and Online Opportunities. Information on online schemes/sessions.
We are now in the process of planning our Pilot Project, which will run in the Autumn and be aimed at aspiring actors from underrepresented backgrounds in West Yorkshire.
