Boundless Theatre Search

Advisory Group

The Boundless Advisory Group is at the heart of everything we do. To keep us in check and to ensure we are being ambitious with our plans we have advisors made up of teenagers and young adults who are drawn from different backgrounds and interests: from digital media to theatre to parkour.

“It’s happening right in front of you, you can’t press pause, you can’t stop.”

Fin, Boundless Adviser

Our Advisers meet with us regularly to share with us what they think about the world, and the work that we create. We talk about big ideas, attend events and discuss what excites them most about being young today. In return we offer mentoring, support for projects and resources that build resilience.  We have a dedicated budget that is spent by the Advisory Group directly each year and are always looking for new ways to break down boundaries between arts organisations and young people.

To keep things fresh (and fair) our Advisory Group evolves each year and we welcome new members throughout the year.

If you are aged between 15–25 and feel you would thrive in the role of a Boundless Adviser, please check out our Opportunities page for more information or contact

“Boundless Theatre to me means no limits.”

Finlay Ross Russell Advisory Group

Fin sees that there is a lot going on in the world and believes that the only way to make significant progress on complex issues is by creating and encouraging new perspectives. This is what he has done through his films, his writing and his performance. Having grown up being homeschooled around the world, he is currently studying Drama, Applied Theatre & Education at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. He hopes to use his new skills to position the arts as a means of bridging cultural divides and bringing people together.
