Our project activities range from working with and supporting emerging East Midlands artists, to uncovering stories from the heart of communities where voices are not always heard. Current projects include Boston Stories and #Mansfield as part of a national collaboration with Headlong.
We offer targeted support to an East Midlands based company and artist on a fixed term basis, in areas of artistic and dramaturgical development, business planning and fundraising, including practical advice on touring work. Each mentoring programme is outcome driven and tailored to suit the individual needs of the company/artist.
We invite major figures from the theatre and arts industry as part of a wider Artist Development programme to lead targeted sessions. This provides opportunities for both practising and emerging East Midlands theatre-makers to work in a detailed, practical way accessing a range of ground-breaking artists and companies.
We invest in new writing and production through practical project activity. Open Pitch s a biennial opportunity to receive support to tour a new rural touring production. Three pitches will receive 3 days development support and the selected pitch will be awarded a commission.
We very rarely have the means to produce unsolicited new plays. If you wish to discuss a creative idea please make contact with our Artistic Director, Jack McNamara, with an introductory email, including a short example of your work to email@example.com.
