Curve Resident Creatives

As part of our commitment to supporting and developing local artists from across our region, earlier his year we announced our Curve Resident Creatives.

These 16 theatre-makers and companies will play a key role in shaping the future of Curve. The Curve Resident Creatives will be embedded in the life of the theatre and will be supported by Curve to create new work and develop artistic practice in Leicester.

Community Ambassadors

Our Curve Community Ambassadors help us find new ways to connect with our local communities. The ambassadors have each used their own expertise and local knowledge to invite a range of groups to enjoy the show for free as part of this initiative, widening engagement and participation with the production across Leicester.
