Old Courts Creatives is a new creative development programme for people aged 18-30 in Wigan & Leigh who want to develop as an artist, creative, producer.
You’ll develop your skills, practice and portfolio through workshops, mentoring and the opportunity to make work. You’ll also get the chance to work with other young creatives and professional artists from across the performing arts industry towards a live performance opportunity at The Old Courts.
It will run from Feb – March and is free to attend. It is delivered in collaboration with LUNG and The Old Courts.
LUNG is a theatre company creating work that shines a light on political, social and economic issues in modern Britain. This programme builds on their successful Roaring 20s artist development programme that trains, mentors and supports early career artists and young people.
The programme will follow 2 stages.
*A Scratch Performance is an informal live event where artists share unfinished work in a supportive environment to test out ideas and receive feedback. You don’t have to perform at this, and could instead help to produce the event.
