The Elements

The Elements

At the West Yorkshire Playhouse, we have one of the most comprehensive artist development programmes in the country. Our bespoke, interconnected programme of professional development for artists and makers is structured around the elements. Some of these elements are already well-established. Others are in their infancy and will grow over the coming years.

Our Elements:

  • each specialise on a creative discipline, while maintaining a level of flexibility, allowing us to respond quickly to each individual artists’ needs.
  • are structured in order to encourage the cross-pollination of ideas and disciplines.
  • all include initiatives designed to increase and sustain our engagement and support of artists from backgrounds currently under-represented in UK theatre.
