JMK South West – Nuffield Southampton Theatres & Salisbury Playhouse

We run a Directors' Group for emerging directors in the South West, hosted at Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Wiltshire Creative (Salisbury Playhouse). Participants have access to free JMK workshops, residencies and networking events at both venues, as well as the opportunity to apply for Assistant Director bursaries.

This group is run by our JMK Director Practitioner, Nik Partridge, who also runs our new group at Reading Rep - encouraging creative collaboration across the regions.
