"Developing Artists opened so many doors, so many opportunities for me."
"Developing Artists gave me the experience and the opportunity that has been fundamental to my career and life. But, not only that, I managed to cement friendships based on mutual respect of our differing talents and personalities with people from all walks of life."
Apprenticeships are the primary way in which we link individual artists with the international arts community, providing full "on-the-job" professional training. We indentify talented people at an early stage of their career, and give them a fully funded scholarship to participate in a professional arts project abroad. Apprenticeship programmes and exchanges have recently operated between Cape Verde, Mexico, Zimbabwe and the UK and USA.
