About TDA

Tamasha Developing Artists

Is an artist-led professional development programme for emerging and established theatre artists.

Launched in 2004, it aims to train and nurture the artistic individuality of the theatre voices of tomorrow, and to take positive action to encourage greater diversity in British theatre.  The programme offers intensive training courses, workshops, masterclasses, bursaries and traineeships and ongoing professional support.

It aims to be the place to look for a new generation of theatre artists, and to be a direct platform into professional employment.
