Creative Developments

Metro Arts’ Creative Development program allows artists to experiment with new ideas, new forms, new collaborations and new ways of working. Artists receive studio or theatre space, artist fees, creative and producing mentorship, and the freedom to focus on process rather than outcome; to follow their curiosity wherever it leads.

Metro Arts welcome Madeleine Little, Kristen Maloney, Sandro Colarelli and Michael Smith as our Creative Development artists in 2020; a cohort of musicians, theatre-makers, dancers, writers, technologists and more. We can’t wait to see what they discover.
