The 2018 – 2019 Creative Talent Programme Artists were:
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.
Throughout the year, the selected companies/artists have received 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.
