Here you can find out more about how the National Theatre is organised.

The National Theatre aims to be a clearly visible participant and force in society, through engaging the public in important questions and issues, and by remaining a central source of national identity and development.

In order to realise this aim, the theatre depends on good management and organisation. Political guidelines and artistic goals need balancing with fiscal realities in order to create plentiful and great dramatic art.

The Department of Culture, the board, and the management team

The owner of the National Theatre is the Department of Culture, which appoints the theatre’s board members. The board is the theatre’s supreme decision-making body. Below the board is the management team, consisting of the theatre’s key area managers.
