National Theatre Wales works with artists at all stages of their development ranging from internationally renowned theatre makers to individuals at the very start of their artistic lives.
There is a range of different ways that you can engage with the company, and we are always interested in hearing your ideas. In general we work with Welsh and Wales-based artists, or artists who have an interest in Wales and our way of working. Opportunities for artists include:
All year round:
- Creative Development
Our artist support initiative helps artists develop early ideas for performance across Wales.
Supports people who want to get involved with NTW, who want to develop their creativity, or who need support in setting up their own initiatives.
- ARTISTS’ AND WRITERS’ IDEAS
We’re always happy to hear from artists and welcome your ideas and examples of your work. We’ve created some guidelines to help you tell us about what you do.
