NEW ASSOCIATES 2019
An invitation for a new generation of East Midlands practitioners to learn from and influence New Perspectives' future work and practices
Over one year the New Associates will:
-observe a series of board and management meetings to gain a greater understanding of managing a company and charity governance
-join a creative and strategic away day with Artistic Director and key staff team, with the opportunity to join early conversations and exchange fresh ideas
-act as a sounding board for new ideas and project strands
-attend rehearsals, readings, masterclasses, performances and other events throughout the year
-receive a tailored support package for an agreed project, such as rehearsal space and mentoring, including dramaturgical support and touring expertise
The advisory group is intended for early career practitioners who are interested in growing their company/work as well as taking a leadership role or joining a voluntary board. New Perspectives encourages applications from people under 40 years and from all backgrounds.
Artistic Director Jack McNamara says, 'I am really excited to invite a group of early-career artists to join the New Perspectives family and help form the shape of our work going forward. The East Midlands is awash with theatre talent and we want to learn from them as well as help them find ways of developing their own practise. We hope this will also be a chance for artists to think about their own leadership as they play a crucial part in the future of ours'.
The Chair of New Perspectives' Trustees Amanda Farr added, 'As a company encouraging, supporting and obtaining feedback from theatre makers, writers and actors in the region is one of our core values. This opportunity will both impact on New Perspectives as a company and contribute to the development of future artistic leaders'.
