JMK Directors Group North West: The Relaunch

Sunday 8 July, 6pm to 8pm

Come and meet theatre director Liz Stevenson, the new JMK Director Practitioner who will be working with HOME to organise workshops, a two-day residency, ticket offers and social events for emerging theatre makers based in the North West.

Whatever stage you’re at, whether you’ve been to a workshop before or not, we want the opportunity to get to know who you! Being a director can be a lonely and challenging job, and we want to know how we can help you to develop your skills, build relationships and access opportunities close to home.

In this first session, Liz will lead some creative exercises that will get the group working together to think about ways of developing ideas and bringing them to fruition. It’ll be a fun and informal chance to get to know each other and to start a creative conversation. You’ll also hear all about the opportunities the JMK Trust and HOME have in store for the year ahead.

*we will also be offering £5 tickets for Clown Funeral presents Things We Chose to Save at 8.30pm

The event is free to attend, to book your place please email

The JMK Trust was founded in memory of director James Menzies-Kitchin. Each year, the JMK Trust provides talented young and emerging theatre directors with awards, guidance and development opportunities.
