Jamie Luck is the RSC's Lead Practitioner for the Learning and Performance Network - a national programme working with schools across the country to impact on the teaching and learning of Shakespeare.
Before this, Jamie worked for the RSC as Acting Head of the Young People's Programme, and Creative Associate. In these roles, Jamie created two projects introducing new artists and young people to the RSC:
- Sound and Fury - a collaboration with Hip-Hop and Spoken-word artists to engage young people in performing their own soliloquies inspired by Shakespeare.
- Young Company - two-year project for a small group of vulnerable young people exploring the impact RSC might have on their lives.
Before working at the RSC, Jamie worked for seven years for Theatre Royal Bath, and the egg young people's theatre, most extensively as Head of Education & Outreach. Highlights included the opening of the egg, developing numerous partnership projects with service providers supporting vulnerable young people, and directing Max & Beth – a hip-hop adaptation of Macbeth which toured to local schools and Edinburgh.
Before working at the Theatre Royal, Jamie worked for the National Theatre's Education department, and has undertaken freelance work for Bristol Old Vic Theatre and the Arts Council.
