The State of The Arts



Marking the start of Curve‘s new collaboration with In Good Company, the East Midlands-wide artist development partnership, we invite all theatremakers in Leicester to join us for a conversation on what matters to you. Chaired by theatre venue leaders, independent producers and award-winning artists from across the region, this free session offers local artists the chance to share their needs and shape the offer made in the future.

In addition to this conversation session, theatremakers in Leicester currently making new projects are invited to book in for one-to-one “surgery” slots with the In Good Company Team throughout Inside Out Festival for support and guidance. If you’re not sure how to book a tour for your next show, or stuck mid-way through an Arts Council application, we can help.

Slots are available on Thu 25 and Fri 26 Oct. To book please email [email protected]  with the subject title ‘Inside Out 1-1’, providing a short overview of your current project and the question or subject that you need help with. This will help us prepare effectively for the conversation.
