Across the East Midlands there is an impressive community of emerging artists and companies. Each year we offer targeted support and a block of rehearsal/workshop space to an East Midlands based company and artist, to support their development. The areas we support vary from artistic and dramaturgical, developing business skills or practical advice on touring work, including rural touring. Each mentoring programme is outcome driven and tailored to suit individual needs. Through this programme we aim to equip artists with skills, knowledge and advice that will help to help realise their ambitions. 

This year we are privileged to be working with Mansfield based Unanima Theatre, an integrated company of adults with and without Learning Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or Down Syndrome. The company creates innovative and autobiographical community theatre performances via a professionally led devising process.

If you are interested in receiving guidance in the future please email us, summarising your experience to date together with an outline of your goals, explaining what you hope this support will help you to achieve. Send your email to info@newperspectives.co.uk with Company/Artist support as the subject.
