Sustained Theatre Regional Associate Producers

This exciting new programme provides full-time, paid placements for four Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Associate Producers wishing to develop their skills and experience.

It sees Tamasha working in partnership with seven theatre and performance venues in England:

Contact, Manchester
Belgrade Theatre Coventry
Derby Theatre 
The Dukes, Lancaster 
Luton Culture - The Hat Factory Arts Centre
Mercury Theatre Colchester
Rich Mix, London

The programme, which is supported by Arts Council England’s Sustained Theatre Fund, provides high-level support and mentoring for each producer over an 18 month period. Each producer is hosted in one of the partner venues and each will produce a new show, as well as delivering community engagement and artist development activities - all reflecting a strong 'sense of place'. IGNITE is the name we have collectively given to these productions and projects.    

The four Associate Producers are: 

Lian Wilkinson hosted by Belgrade Theatre Coventry 
Rafia Hussain hosted by Derby Threatre
Dilek Latif hosted by Mercury Theatre Colchester (30 month placement) 
Anna Nguyen hosted by The Dukes Lancaster

The three remaining venue partners may present the touring productions, and will collaborate with artist development and engagment activities that programme's ambitions to diversify the cultural workforce and reach wider diverse audiences across England.
