For Artists

Artist development programme

Mercury’s Artist Development Programme supports the development of ground-breaking, east-based theatre makers.

By providing time and space for researching, exploring and testing ideas, we aim to nurture and grow the innovators of tomorrow.

The Mercury aims to provide a transparent ladder of progression in order to provide a huge benefit for skills development – here is how we can support artists from education to employment:
• Mercury Young Company
• Mercury Connects
• Mercury Playwrights / Directors / Producers
• Hg Festival
• Mercury Creatives
• Mercury Originals
• Associate Artists
• Mercury Productions

Playwrights, Producers and Directors

Following a hugely successful year offering support and development to a talented pool of Playwrights, Producers and Directors in the East of England, we are incredibly excited to open up a call out for a 2022/23 cohort. You can find out more about each of the programmes and how to apply at the buttons below.
