Artist Development

Developing Artists and Practice

CSB invests in the future of the arts by supporting artists, at all stages of their careers, in their creative development. This has included training and development opportunities, trying out and developing new ideas, collaborating with other artists, development and mentoring for emerging artists. Our artist development has helped refugee artists: Develop their careers, chances to perform and benefit from wider opportunities; Develop networks, promote their own events and create new collaborations, develop and create new works.
