About Digital Darkroom

The Digital Darkroom is a new artist development programme that aims to inspire artists and producers working on studio to mid-scale productions to think creatively about what ‘digital content’ is, what their digital impact could be and what is possible at this scale of work. The project includes sector wide strategic talks, skills and knowledge development and a commissioning process.


The Digital Darkroom is delivered in partnership with New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth and Warwick Arts Centre.

Digital Darkroom Creative Exchange

The Digital Darkroom Creative Exchange took place at Warwick Arts Centre in October 2019, and brought together a small group of independent arts producers and digital platforms/specialists over 2 days to share knowledge, evaluate current digital opportunities, overcome creative challenges and explore new ways of working together to capture, distribute and create live-digital content.

The exchange explored what the 21st Century digital presence could be for independent theatre-makers and small-mid scale work, whilst also looking at the nuts and bolts of creating and distributing digital content.
