New Perspectives theatre company will be supporting a group of up to six new creative practitioners from the East Midlands region. This will be a new opportunity for early-career artists to gain a close insight into the workings of the company, feed in their own ideas, benefit from a range of company contacts and receive support with their own work. They will act as ambassadors for New Perspectives, helping to spread the word about our productions and programmes, and help shape our future.
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 will comprise of early career practitioners who are interested in growing their company/work as well as taking a leadership role or joining a voluntary board.
