Are you an early career artist or new company based in the West Midlands? Are you looking for support in developing and growing your career? Our Springboard programme is back and we’re excited to announce that applications are now open!

Over the next three years, we are looking to support two or three new or early-stage companies or artists to take their careers to the next level. Launched in 2015, Springboard helps companies and artists to scale ideas, consider capital, fundraise, and create a business plan, as well as creating and developing projects.

Springboard Companies can also access:

  • Selected performance slots in our season and free rehearsal space for Research and Development (one show and R&D period per year),
  • Designated office space at the Belgrade Theatre,
  • An opportunity to register your company address at the Belgrade Theatre,
  • Monthly one-to-one meetings with the Company Director,
  • Tailored one-to-one meetings and support from the wider Belgrade team, across departments such as production, finance, fundraising and marketing (including applying to the Arts Council),
  • Support from the Belgrade’s marketing team for shows being performed at the Belgrade Theatre.

At the Belgrade Theatre, co-created practice is at the heart of everything we do. We want to invest in, and connect with, companies that have social action at the heart of their work, whether through performance or the activities they engage with.
