Creative'pool from Unity Theatre

Unity in Liverpool has launched Creative’pool: a talent development programme providing more than 200 artists a year with training, networks, skills and resource to build a sustainable career in the creative arts.

With four different levels, Creative’pool has been designed to support creators of all backgrounds, at all levels of experience, preparing the next wave of Merseyside-based artists and producers to share their talent.

The programme, supported by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, will begin in January and includes £5 tickets across the entire Unity programme, free-to-access masterclasses and workshops, free space and support for artists to develop, record and stream their work, a year-long producer course with two weekend-residencies run by national experts and a new role for an associate producer.
