Catalyser is a creative learning programme for people aged 18-25 years which will take place at Clod Ensemble Studios in North Greenwich.

Over 25 days in Autumn 2022, Clod Ensemble will be sharing their unique approach to interdisciplinary practice with 20 young artists who are interested in dance, music, theatre and visual arts. Participants will be given a bursary of £1,000 to participate so that they may have time to develop their creative skills, create new career pathways and be agents of positive social change.

Young artists will benefit from bespoke training and mentoring from Artistic Directors Suzy Willson and Paul Clark and Clod Ensemble’s Associate Artists, as well as access to industry networks, peer-to-peer learning and support, and use of Clod Ensemble Studios to develop their own work. Alongside creative skills development, Catalyser will provide practical workshops on fundraising, networking, finances, self-producing, and how to engage local communities.

Catalyser aims to connect young artists with each other and with established artists – encourage a new generation to make genre-defying work which is rooted in respectful collaboration.
