Curve Breakthrough Companies

Breakthrough was Curve’s year-round development programme for emerging artists. We see our role as helping artists to reach their full potential by offering opportunities to make, share and explore new work and ideas, while giving critical feedback and linking artists in with our networks.

We want to help artists develop work that transforms our building, engages with our audience and inspires the way we work, think and programme.

Find out more about the artists we worked with as part of Breakthrough below and click here to see the current opportunities we have available for Midlands creatives.
