At Haringey Shed, we are all working towards make the performing arts accessible to children of all abilities and backgrounds in order to develop their creativity, confidence and integration into the community.  Here are some of the people who contribute to that:
 
 
Company and Volunteer Manager - Ashling Foat
Hi my name is Ashling Foat and I am the Company and Volunteer Manager at Haringey Shed. I started as a volunteer for Children's Theatre and Youth Theatre over 5 years ago and fell in love with Haringey Shed. After finishing my degree in Drama and Theatre studies I knew it was young people I wanted to work with. I have worked in many educational and arts organisations as a teaching assistant and early years drama specialist, both here in the UK and abroad. Now as Company and Volunteer Manager I have swapped my puppets and drama games for a clipboard and Blackberry. I consider myself very lucky to work at Haringey Shed and play part in the incredible work we do!
 
Artistic Director - Eddie Latter
Hi I’m Eddie and I am the Artistic Director here at Shed. Having spent many years as freelance theatre director I wanted to spend more quality time with a group of young people, so that I could develop an on-going creative relationship with them, as opposed to dropping in for a day and then leaving. I have worked for many organisations in the past, such as the BBC, Shakespeare’s Globe and YMT:UK and love what I do. When this opportunity came up it was made extra special by the fact that I could see the beloved White Hart Lane stadium from my desk. I am fortunate to work with great colleagues and to have a fantastic staff team, who week after week do outstanding work
 
Artistic Project Leader - Alexandra Dowson 
After being a member of Haringey Shed when I was younger, it kickstarted my passion for making theatre in my local community, being a local North London girl my passion grew and grew and I later wanted to train in the arts with the focus on working with communities. I went on to train at East 15 Acting school on the Acting and Community theatre course. I have worked in projects within pupil referral units (PRU's) focusing on the stigma attached to failure, delivering outreach projects to school. I worked with young offenders focusing on domestic crimes and using forum theatre as a tool for change, challenging perceptions and managing choices.  I am always in schools engaging in the arts with the focus on improving learning. Of course, being an artistic project leader for Haringey Shed, I have a real interest in engaging children and young people helping them to be able to access the arts
 
Artistic Project Leader - Chantelle Burley
I'm very excited to be Artistic Project Leader at Haringey Shed. I fell in love with theatre when I attended an after-school youth theatre at Half-Moon in East London where I grew up. My experience at Half-Moon Theatre had a massive impact on me that I went on to complete a BA in Drama, Applied Theatre and Education at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and an MA in Educational Theatre at New York University. These degrees gave me a solid foundation, and I developed a strong passion for teaching drama to children and young people. My focus in regards to drama is the process. I'm always interested in what participants are getting out of the sessions, because I believe drama can have a positive impact on a person's physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Haringey Shed thus far and look forward to my journey ahead
 
Artistic Project Leader - Nataliya Kharina 
Hey there, I'm Nataliya! I graduated from the Drama, Applied Theatre and Education course at the Central School of Speech and Drama in 2010. Since my studies I have been working in the UK and abroad on various applied theatre projects with children and young people. Most recently I spent several years in Hong Kong and Sydney working in theatre companies. Prior to that I ran projects in Italy and Siberia. I am a very strong believer in the fact that Drama has the power to instill life skills in people like nothing else. The more work I do, the more I believe it. I am now settled in the UK after my travels and have been lucky enough to be offered a home at Haringey Shed. I am very much looking forward to sticking around and building the kind of strong relationships with the young people that a travelling freelancer doesn't get the chance to develop
 
Artistic Project Leader - Nigel Munson 
I trained as an actor at the Oxford School of Drama. Since then I've toured the country in shows like Blue Remembered Hills and Carrie's War. I've also made a lot of my own work. I make interactive festival theatre with a collective called Dank Parish. I write and perform in strange surreal shows with 6FootStories. And I film very silly comedy sketches with my troupe The Oxy Morons. As well as all this I do tons with young people. I've worked for loads of youth theatres and all sorts of schools, colleges and youth clubs, but nothing is quite like Haringey Shed. It's loud, inspiring, and totally unpredictable, and I'm loving my time here
 
Executive Director - Jim Shepley 
Hello, I’m Jim Shepley Executive Director for the charity, a role which I cherish.  Throughout my childhood and youth I was inspired by some great teachers and leaders to take part in drama, which eventually led me to drama school.  The precarious vocation of acting gave me plenty of time for other interests, including volunteering and working in the charity sector, where I’ve gained over 20 years’ experience.  Working for Haringey Shed I get to be part of something that inspires and provides positive experiences for so many young people
 
The rest of our staff team work with us providing support for the young people on our nightly activities. They are made up of a range of individuals who specialise in this field or who just have a love of working with young people. We run termly training opportunities for all our staff as we are always aiming to develop our practice
 
Ambassadors
The Ambassadors are a group of our 13 - 16 year olds who have an interest in volunteering and helping others. For example our Youth Theatre members join Children’s Theatre and act as support for our younger members. For the majority they then stay on and participate as a member in their own right. This opportunity allows them to primarily have a really fun and engaging experience, but also to develop the other skills that are required for this work, such as teamwork, building confidence, enabling responsibility and being a leader. The Ambassadors also help us with our other events and act as a voice for the members of Haringey Shed. We are very proud of our Ambassadors as we watch some of their fantastic work and see them develop. This is an opportunity that could be available to any new member who has a similar interest
