Training

A group of young women, all of them look directly at the camera, two are standing and two are seated.

China Plate’s development programmes offer artists and practitioners wide-ranging opportunities to develop productions, innovate their professional and creative practice and extend their industry networks.

Our programme of work includes The Optimists producer training programme, bespoke development residencies, work in progress / showcase festivals, commissioning opportunities and strategic support for artists and the wider sector.

Opportunities are available for creatives starting out in the industry through to those developing work for midscale venues/audiences.

For more information, please contact Rosie Kelly.
