Emerging Artist Programme

Supporting homegrown talent from the North West

  • not in full time education

  • no more than 5 years into their chosen vocation 

How does it work? 

Artists are recruited into a creative team and empowered to create new work that reflects their artistic styles and ideas. The production process provides the team with the freedom to experiment and innovate whilst receiving bespoke support and guidance throughout from experienced professionals. 

The creative team benefit from:

  • Mentoring from Script & Score Associates

  • Access to workshops and master classes

  • Access to networking events

  • Industry experience and guidance throughout the production process

  • Financial support 


By developing new skills, growing their network and improving their understanding of the professional environment the team can confidently pursue future opportunities and the final production is a valuable addition to portfolios and CVs.
