Interview: Northcott Futures Programme


We’ve provided lots of ways to support early-career artists and theatre-makers over the last year, including our Northcott Kickstart Company, a training company led and guided by Associate Director Yusuf Niazi. Working alongside the Northcott’s professional teams, participants received first-hand experience in all aspects of theatre making. And there are still lots of ways to get involved and broaden your skillsets with Exeter Northcott! Our Young Creatives scheme is currently producing a programme of free, online workshops aimed at 17-21 year olds on a range of topics, from producing and making your own work to running a theatre festival.

Head to our What’s On page to view our latest workshop or visit our Get Creative page to view our latest creative opportunities.
