Associate Artists

Nottingham Playhouse is committed to developing relationships with local artists by providing them with development and production support, allowing them to be creative in a nurturing environment. The benefits of such relationships are endless: for the artists’ growth, for Nottingham Playhouse’s continuing understanding of the cultural landscape, and for our audience to experience work that has been developed right here in Nottingham, with them in mind.

Nottingham Playhouse currently works in close collaboration with four Associate Artists, who you can find out more about here.
