JMK Newcastle – Northern Stage

In partnership with Northern Stage, we run a JMK Directors' Group for emerging directors in the North. 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 collaboration between directors in the two regions.

Curious about our programme?
