To ensure that this event is accessible to everyone, it will now take place at Omnibus Clapham. This is due to delays to the building work taking place at Battersea Arts Centre, which means that the building is not yet fully accessible.

All Tomorrow’s Theatre will bring together artists, industry and audiences to discuss ‘artist development’ UK-wide.

The day will feature work-in-progress sharings from artists curated by our guests, ARC Stockton, Derby Theatre, National Theatre of Wales and Nuffield Theatre. It will shine a light on the breadth and diversity of artist support initiatives around the UK – celebrating what’s being done, but also asking whether and how it might be done better.

Whether you are an artist, student, producer or venue programmer, join us to share your experiences. There will be opportunities to meet artists and producers from across the UK and to take part in discussions exploring the philosophy and practise of artist development, facilitated by guest speakers.

Hosted  in partnership with Camden’s People’s Theatre.

Opening provocations from:

Chris Goode (Chris Goode & Company)
Rhiannon White (Common Wealth)
Conrad Murray (Beats&Elements and BAC Beatbox Academy)
Paula Varjack (Independent Performance and Video Artist)
Jess Thom (Touretteshero)


Dominic Garfield (HighRise Theatre)
Emma Bettridge (Bristol Old Vic)
Paul Warwick (China Plate)
Debo Adebayo (Tamasha)
Nikki Tomlinson (Artsadmin)
Nisha Modhwadia (Birmingham Rep)
Jessica Latowicki (Made in China)
Rebecca Biscuit (SH!T THEATRE)

Discussion topics:

* What could venues be doing better? Who benefits? Is the culture of ‘artist development’ better for venues, or artists?
* Development hell – getting from work-in-progress to finished production, from ‘emerging’ to ‘established’.
* Who gets ‘developed’? Who is and isn’t able to become a professional artist and how can we change that?
* How can we better support artist to make socially engaged work, and/or work outside theatres?
* How do you survive and thrive as an independent artist? What do you need to succeed?
* How important is place? How does artist development differ across the UK?
