Creative Talent Programme 2018 – 2019
The Creative Talent Programme identifies young and emerging artists and companies who have the potential to become excellent creative practitioners and gives them the artistic, business and strategic support to become flourishing, challenging, exciting organisations of the future.
Creative Youth are delighted to announce the 2018 – 2019 Creative Talent Programme Artists.
After receiving a number of high quality applications, the panel chose three companies/artists who demonstrated talent, ambition and determination. The selected artists are:
Sculptress Theatre: A ground-breaking theatre company that explores and re-defines traditional narratives
What is Written Dance Company: An award winning dance company, based in Kingston, who bring different artists together and embody diversity by fusing contemporary principles with urban movement
Marika McKennell: A london-based scriptwriter, performer and poet, informed and inspired by her mixed heritage and the diverse cultural influences that make up her hometown.
Over the course of a year, the selected companies/artists will receive funding to develop a piece of creative work, a bespoke, art form specific mentor, access to rehearsal space and office space and a series of professional development sessions.
The Creative Talent Programme 2018 – 2019 is generously supported using public funding by Arts Council England and will work in partnership with the Royal Borough of Kingston council, Kingston University, the Rose Theatre Kingston and Kingston College.
