‘Through the artist network I had the opportunity to get my work out there, in front of an engaged and supportive audience, free rehearsal space (which is invaluable), direct feedback (lots of it), paid work as an artist, and the chance to collaborate with one of the most prestigious theatre venues in the country.’
Lewis Charlesworth – Artist Network member
