The Point, Associate Artist Scheme
The Point’s Associate Artist Scheme offers a unique residency programme in Eastleigh for performing arts companies from across the country.
Fast becoming known as an incubator for new and exciting artists and companies, The Point prides itself on putting creatives at the heart of its bustling venue and ambitious programme. Its Associate Artist Scheme is one of the most successful in the UK, seen by many as an example of best practice.
The scheme offers a unique opportunity to graduate, emerging and early career artists and companies by giving structured support and mentorship to enable them to develop artistically, to find a market for their work and to develop sustainable careers. As part of the scheme the artists are encouraged to move to Eastleigh and to become part of the growing network of creative professionals in the borough.
As part of the scheme associate artists have the opportunity to use The Point’s extensive facilities including its state-of-the-art Creation Space to create new performance work. They also receive mentorship from The Point’s artistic director and creative producer along with business, technical and marketing support.
Also unique to the scheme is the opportunity for young artists to showcase new work to audiences at The Point and industry network platforms. Once artists and companies complete the year-long scheme many move on to become Supported Artists, enabling them to continue to use The Point as their creative home.
