New look to Lowry development programme

Published: 9 March 2019

The Lowry in Salford marks ten years of its Artist Development Programme with a relaunch.

The programme has enabled artists and companies to present innovative work.

Since 2009, a total of 52 productions have been commissioned, from comic Sophie Willan's first stand-up hour On Record to Theatre Ad Infinitum’s Ballad of the Burning Star, a drag cabaret journey into the conflicted Jewish state.

The new structure comprises four strands aimed at nurturing artists at different stages of their practice. Artist Network, Class Of, Developed With and Associate Artists can be taken part in as a complete journey or independent of each other.
