Derby Theatre and IGC Independent Producer Residencies

Derby Theatre and In Good Company

Derby Theatre and In Good Company will deliver a programme of paid Producer Residencies. 8 early-career producers across two years will be supported to develop their professional practice in a meaningful and practical way, with a focus on recruiting and addressing a need for producers from the Global Majority and those with other protected characteristics. The residencies will provide high quality training, opportunities to work directly with experienced producers and artists, whilst also benefiting from a new network and post-residency support programme to grow and develop their careers.

“In Good Company and Derby Theatre are delighted to be joining forces to present this innovative new scheme aimed at developing the diversity of producers who are helping artists to make work and shining a light on new producers whose work often happens behind the scenes. More than ever the independent sector need new Producers who are able to advocate for artists voices, this will develop a model to train and develop a new generation” – Sarah Brigham, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of Derby Theatre and Emily Coleman, Consultant Producer of In Good Company.
