Artists Support

The Arts Development team are dedicated to supporting, nurturing and developing a thriving arts ecology in Cornwall. We work with a range of creative artists through specialist projects and programmes, masterclasses, insight events, one to one surgeries, training, information and guidance, networking and practical support.
If you are a professional artist or aspire to be, then read the range of support services that are on offer to you.
Some of the highlights of our development work include the following:
  • Last year, Hall for Cornwall funded six Creation Space Residencies at Cornish venues from Penzance to Liskeard with 30 artists collaborating on the development of brand new work.
  • In 2016 we partnered with FEAST Cornwall to fund the development of initial ideas for 7 new pieces of rural touring work in dance and theatre to tour the county and beyond.
  • Over the course of the last year, our Arts Development team held 145 hours of one to one meetings with Dance and Theatre artists from all over Cornwall to discuss their professional development. 
  • 78 artists based in Cornwall were supported by HFC to attend seven masterclasses held by highly skilled professionals in their field.
  • 13 Dance Artists were supported to attend professional development opportunities across the UK and in to Europe.
  • Across 2015 - 2016, 18 Reviews of professional work across the county were written by our HFC New Reviewers, members of the community who are passionate about new work generated in Cornwall.
