We run a Directors Group in partnership with the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, for new and emerging directors across Wales.
This group is run by our JMK Director Practitioner, Adele Thomas. Adele also runs our Directors’ Group in Bristol – an open group for directors based in this area, hosted with Bristol Old Vic and Tobacco Factory Theatres.
For updates on the JMK directors’ group in Cardiff, please sign up to our mailing list.
Further opportunities for our Cardiff group will be announced shortly! In the meantime, check out the free workshops we have coming up in Bristol, Reading, Salisbury and Southampton. There is a small bursary pot available to support participants who may need assistance with covering travel and/or any access requirements they may have. Full information can be found here.
The 2018 JMK Sherman Directors’ Group:
Supported by the Carne Trust, our 2018 directors’ group worked very intensively with a small group of directors. In partnership with the Sherman, we selected the directors who would most benefit from the support at this stage of their careers.
The selected directors benefited from numerous free skills workshops, networking events and access to mentoring and support throughout the year, with opportunities to work in both Welsh and English. They also partnered up with a writer from the Sherman’s New Welsh Playwrights Programme to develop and showcase a new piece of work. Members of the Directors’ Group were also eligible to apply for Assistant Director positions.
