We only partner with a maximum of four artists per cohort which means it can be really tough competition. We don’t judge you on your successes, failures, or experience – rather – we look for those who have the most potential to flourish under our guidance. Therefore it’s far better to be honest with us about your current situation! 



 With such limited space, we can’t always offer everyone that we’d like a space on the programme. You should know that not receiving an offer is not a reflection of your artistic abilities. 



If you’re interested, you’ll need to start by reading the spec below and judge if you think you’re a good fit. After that, go ahead and complete the short application form before the 31st May 2023. We’ll then invite a maximum of eight artists to interview for the scheme before offering our spaces. 


We try to be as inclusive as possible with our schemes but it’s vital that you meet key criteria with regards to your demographics. We want to hear from you if:

  • You are aged between 18 and 30 years old. 
  • Identify as LGBTQ+ or have a proven track record of successful & evidenced allyship.
  • You have left (either through graduation or dropping out of) school/college.
  • Are able to occasionally commute to Woking and Guildford.
  • Can commit to one evening or half day a month of learning. 
50% of the interview spaces are reserved for additionally marginalised people. This means that we’d really like to hear from LGBTQ+ people who experience multiple marginalisation (such as LGBTQ+ people of colour, LGBTQ+ people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ people of faith) and people from under-represented LGBTQ+ communities (such as trans people, bi people, and ace & aro people). le from these communities. 


It’s important to keep in mind this is not a space for you to specifically develop your artistic abilities – We’re here to support you benefit from your existing talents. Ideally, you’ll be able to demonstrate:

  • Have a portfolio of artwork or have experience in live performances.
  • Understand how to work with a range of artistic mediums.
  • Creating art on either an amateur or professional basis for a number of years. 


Most important is your personal drive to succeed. You’ll need to be ready to demonstrate: 

  • A drive & passion for creating art and sharing your artistic talents with others.
  • A clear commitment to addressing inequalities and ensuring you create accessible environments for marginalised people. 
  • A strong level of resilience and will to give things a go.
  • The ability and courage to fail but to learn from your mistakes.
  • Alignment with our company values which are “inclusive, strength, action, and community”.
  • An eagerness to explore creative practices as a career path. 


  • We are not responsible for your success within the programme or your future success. Although we can share our learning & skills with you – it is up to you what you do with the learning & where it takes you.
  • We have zero tolerance for homophobic, biphobic, transphobic, ablist, racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, agist, or in any way discriminatory or bullying behavior. Anyone acting in such a way will be removed from the programme immediately. 
  • All of the advice, guidance, and requests that are part of this programme are optional. Should you wish not to take part in a particular workshop or activity then you just need to say so. It is important you maintain a level of autonomy and decide if our guidance is right for you or not.

All good? Let's go!
