Gerry Ramage standing down this February


Gerry Ramage, one of the founders and Artistic Director of Solar Bear will be standing down from his role in February 2017.

Gerry has been the driving force behind the company for the last 15 years driven by a desire to embed access and opportunity in the arts for everyone, no matter what their circumstances.

His achievements are too many to list here but highlights include the production of award winning plays, the establishment of Deaf Youth Theatre and, in partnership with The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the development of the ground breaking BA Performance course delivered in BSL and English.

 “It has been an honour to lead Solar Bear from its early beginnings to where we are today.  I have the privilege of working with so many people who share my passion for a more inclusive, equal and diverse cultural climate. After 15 years, it is no understatement to suggest we have made large strides forward in providing opportunity and access for underrepresented groups in the arts. But there is still a long way to go. I know that the team at Solar Bear, along with the new Creative Director, will continue this journey into the future with the same passion”.

 Solar Bear is delighted to announce that we will start advertising the position of Creative Director soon in order to allow the new artistic lead to put their imprint on the new artistic plan for 2018 – 2021.

 Gerry leaves behind what might seem like a small company in size, but one that has big ambitions, a dedicated and passionate team and, under the guidance of the new Creative Director, an organisation that will look to continue the journey Gerry started with the same imagination and drive.

 Our thanks and love go out to Gerry for all his hard work.
