Forthcoming Masterclasses

"It broadened my view of the nature of the audience/performer identity"
 - Coney masterclass participant


Each year we curate a series of inspiring masterclass sessions with major figures from the theatre and arts industry as part of our wider Artist Development programme. These targeted sessions provide opportunities for East Midlands theatre-makers to work in a detailed, practical way, accessing a range of ground - breaking artists and companies. We create an informal, inclusive setting where participants at all career stages can benefit from new skills, insights and make new contacts.

The Masterclass series continues through 2017 - check this space for details...
