Talent Development


Talent Development

HOME is Manchester’s creative hub, where local and world-class talent of all backgrounds and disciplines is discovered, nurtured and showcased.

Emerging creatives can take advantage of one-off skills workshops, long-term development residencies, commissions and regular showcase opportunities, which support the professional development of theatre makers, visual artists and filmmakers at all career stages and connect our region’s creatives with national and international practitioners making work for our stages, screens and galleries.

We are delighted to welcome new Associate Theatre Companies 1927 and Mighty Heart Theatre. Both challenge the conventions of theatre making with burning social and political issues at their core. They join existing Associates Quarantine, Manchester’s leading experimental theatre company. Actor Katie West also joins us as Associate Artist. West first took to our stage in the UK premiere of Chamaco, by Cuba’s playwright Abel González Melo, and recent credits include the Royal Exchange Theatre, the Almeida Theatre and the Royal Court.

Theatre talent development activities are supported by:


With additional funding from The Fenton Arts Trust, The Garrick Charitable Trust and The Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation.
