JMK Newcastle – Northern Stage

In partnership with Northern Stage, we run a JMK Directors' Group for emerging directors and theatre-makers in the North of England. Participants have access to free JMK workshops, residencies and networking events, as well as the opportunity to apply for Assistant Director bursaries.

This group is run by our JMK Director Practitioner, Maria Crocker. Maria also runs our programme at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, encouraging creative collaboration across the border.

NORTH Festival: JMK - Meet the Artistic Directors

Thursday 6th June 2019
6.15pm
Northern Stage, Stage 3

A JMK event hosted by Northern Stage’s Associate Director, Mark Calvert. This panel discussion with Artistic Directors from across the North East will allow you to find out more about journeys into the industry, what leading a company is like in ‘real-life’, what they’ve learned and how that’s helped shape them as makers. Plus, there will be a chance to put your questions to the group. The panel will be:

Annie Rigby – Unfolding Theatre
Ali Pritchard – Alphabetti Theatre
Joe Douglas – Live Theatre
Lorne Campbell – Northern Stage

There will be a chance to meet fellow artists, theatre makers and members of the panel following the discussion.

This event was hosted as part of Northern Stage's NORTH Festival.
