Wiltshire Creative / JMK Trust Emerging Directors Programme
Wiltshire creative and the JMK Trust are inviting local directors and theatre-makers interested in directing theatre to join their free ongoing talent development scheme, based at the two theatres. The aim is to:
- Create a hub for directors interested in making theatre.
- Provide access to exclusive workshop, training and development opportunities for emerging directors and makers.
- Create a chance for directors and makers to meet regularly, to network and to share ideas both regionally and nationally.
- The opportunity to apply for a Leverhulme Arts Scholarship, securing the chance to work as an assistant director on a professional production.
Jo Newman will head up the scheme at the Wiltshire Creative, working with the Nuffield Theatre and JMK's Regional Coordinators Sam Potter and Justin Audibert to create a series of workshops, gatherings and events for theatre directors in the region throughout the year.
To join the group please email Jo.Newman@wiltshirecreative.co.uk
The JMK Trust was founded in 1997 in memory of a theatre director of thrilling promise, James Menzies-Kitchin, who died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 28. It runs the annual JMK Young Director’s Award and works with theatres around the UK in its regional programme to discover and support emerging theatre directors. Our assistant director bursary, funded by The Leverhulme Trust Arts Scholarships Award, is another part of our work which enables directors to learn new skills through practical experience.
