People with a story to tell who want creative collaboration to tell it
New Perspectives launched Open Pitchin 2021 as an opportunity for anyone in the East Midlands' region who hadn't the chance or means to follow a creative path in their lives, but had a burning idea that would suit performance or presentation to an audience. We invited people to submit a story from their own life, from their neighbourhood or something they were really passionate about.
We have guided, nurtured and supported the development of four original ideas by Donna Briscoe-Greene, Ann Hill, Bob Sea-Dog and Caroline Beeson Spence, discover more about each Open Pitch project here:

As a company we are interested in people, places, passions and in amplifying unheard voices.
Open Pitch is kindly supported by The Garrick Charitable Trust and The D'Oyly Carte Charitable Trust
