Artists & Producers

China Plate work with a large and varied cohort of artists, producers and creative team members.

We have a close relationship with a key group of artists, whose work we often develop from inception through to national and international touring. We are always looking for opportunities to work with a broader group of theatre makers through programming, commissioning, development programmes and showcases.

Our suite of development programmes includes The Optimists, Young Producers, First Bite / Bite Size, The Darkroom, Digital Darkroom, Musical Theatre Darkroom and triggered@Warwick.

China Plate are interested in meeting artists and trying to see as much new work as possible, so if you have work you’d like one of the team to see (or have any other questions), please get in touch via our Contact page.

Artist Wellbeing Policy

In 2018, China Plate researched how to formalise and embed approaches to artist wellbeing across all of our productions and working practices. This has resulted in our Artist Wellbeing Policy.

Created alongside Artist Wellbeing Practitioner Lou Platt, the policy and list of resources aims to aims to provide practical guidelines for safeguarding artist, creative team and employee wellbeing and mental health when working on productions. It is intended to allow for relaxed, robust and open dialogue to happen around wellbeing and care. It covers the entire creative process, from project inception to touring, in conjunction with the specific needs of the production and creative team.

This policy is created for internal use (all staff, artists, creatives working under auspices of China Plate produced productions) and is also intended to be an open resource in order to promote these values in the wider sector. Click here to read the policy – it is also available in our Downloads section below.

If you would like to speak to China Plate regarding the policy, or have any feedback, please contact Rosie Kelly.
