SUPPORT US - ARTISTS
Artist development is central to everything we do at CPT. We’re not a theatre that does a bit of artist support on the side. It’s our priority, and our public programme of work springs from it.
By artist development we mean supporting early-career artists to make innovative work, helping them establish themselves artistically and structurally, offering them advice, programming their work creatively and finding them an audience – and (not least) giving them a community to be part of and a place to call home. The types of development support we offer include:
- structured schemes in which to develop new work to full production
- seed commission funds, including several for artists of colour
- free rehearsal space
- dramaturgical support and mentoring
- fundraising support
- discount or free tickets to CPT shows
- opportunities to become involved in the life of our theatre
- associate artist scheme
- fees for performances and contributions towards travel and accommodation
