The Regent's Network is a creative company comprised and run by Regent's University London Alumni and Students. Their aim is to help ignite, develop and promote creative projects by generating a network of passionate and proactive professionals/students.
Founders Arianna Beadie, Hadley Campbell, Rosalind Hoy, and Emily Thomson explain what it's all about.
How did The Regent's Network get started?
After graduating from the RSDFM's Foundation Course in Acting in 2012 we felt disheartened by the lack of opportunities there were for us to utilise the skills we had learnt during our time at Regent’s. London seemed like a closed shop to us and we became frustrated by this, wondering how we were ever going to act again. We began to realise that the best way around this was to create our own opportunities, but unlike other collaborative groups we recognised that we aren't alone in this predicament and wanted to involve the community that trained us in the first place. And so The Regent's Network was born.
How does The Regent's Network work and who can get involved?
Anyone with a creative passion can be involved in The Regents Network, no matter their skill set, as long as you're a past or present student of Regent's University London. If you have an exciting creative idea, all you have to do is get in touch with The Regent's Network and present us with your idea, and we will aid in the organisation needed to turn that idea into a full project.
Alternatively, if you just want to exercise your creative skills, i.e. acting, directing, writing, singing, etc, you can simply inform us of your talents or interests, and we will then inform you of any upcoming projects or events, which you may be interested in participating in. All we ask is for dedication to the projects/events you participate in, it's that easy!
Have you any upcoming projects?
The most exciting thing about the Regent's Network is that we will constantly be creating work. Following our performance at The Regent's Arts Festival on the 3rd April, we hope to hit the ground running with as many new members and new material as possible. During the summer we are putting on a Theatre Jam, more information will be available soon and by the end of the year we hope to be well underway on a full-length play wholly developed by Regent's Network members.
These are just our immediate plans but Regent's is our oyster and we can’t wait to get working!
