After announcing that Richard and Rishard, Underground Lights and Maokwo would join our Springboard programme in March, we’re delighted to introduce digital arts duo Gertrude and disability arts organisation Radical Body as the latest additions to our talent development programme.

Launched in 2015, our Springboard scheme was set up to support emerging artists to develop their work, offering tailored support over a three-year period. This includes advice and guidance from experienced Belgrade staff, marketing and PR support, and space to create, rehearse and showcase their work, among other benefits.

This new intake of Springboard companies continues the Belgrade’s commitment to nurturing diverse talent from across Coventry and Warwickshire. We’re thrilled to be supporting these two ambitious new companies to break new ground in theatre.
