Tangle AMPLIFY - Artist Development

AMPLIFY is our new a talent development project aiming to increase African and Caribbean representation in off stage roles. It includes regular activities, training and placements throughout the year.

The first phase of AMPLIFY includes:


Educator Training

Delivered in partnership with Prime Theatre, this annual scheme is for arts professionals keen to develop workshop practitioner skills.

Our theme in 2019 is Renaissance Theatre – Breaking the Language Barrier. Participants receive a cash bursary to attend a two day training programme (in London on 9th and  16th September 2019), followed by a one day trial workshop day in Swindon (between 23rd September  and 11th October).

After this training there may be further possibilities to deliver workshops as part of Tangle’s Discovery Programme across South West England, or as part of Prime Theatre’s programme in Swindon, during 2020.

Applications for training in 2019 are now closed


Regular opportunities

Specialist placements

Placements in recorded sound and practical lighting design as part of our new touring production, Volpone. Recipients will receive a cash bursary and the opportunity to design their own programme of work in collaboration with Tangle’s creative team. Applications are invited from October 2019.
