Something we haven’t thought of?
We have five funded weeks of mentoring to offer. The focus for this may be artistic and dramaturgical or developing business skills, career advice or practical advice on touring work or application writing. Each mentoring programme is bespoke and will respond to the particular needs of the artist/company, and the specifics of the project. It’s aim is to facilitate artistic development through sharing skills, knowledge and offering advice.
For over 12 years Third Angel has provided training and mentoring for young and established artists and companies, drawing on over 20 years of making and touring theatre across the UK and internationally. This has consistently been one of the most rewarding areas of our work. We have been lucky enough to support artists and companies including Action Hero, Faye Draper, Hannah Nicklin, RashDash, Daniel Bye, Claire Hind, The Other Way Works and Unfolding Theatre, to name but a few.
What’s On Offer?
Each of the five Mentoring Weeks includes:
- Five days of support from one or a combination of Third Angel Artistic Directors Alexander Kelly and Rachael Walton, and General Manager Hilary Foster.
- A fee of £450 (including travel expenses).
- A week’s rehearsal & mentoring space at Sheffield Theatres (if appropriate - the available dates are included in the application form below).
At least one of the weeks will be awarded to an artist/company from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background.
At least one of the weeks will be awarded to an artist who identifies as disabled.
At least one week will be awarded to an artist/company aged 16 – 21.
At least one week will be awarded to an artist on a low income.

“Without Third Angel's hugely generous and thoughtful mentoring support Action Hero would not exist. At many key points in our formation and development as a collaboration their brilliantly incisive advice has played a crucial role in the decisions we've made. Their continuing support is one of our most valued professional relationships.” Action Hero
Third Angel’s Mentoring Scheme has been made possible with funding from Arts Council England. The scheme will run again in 2017.
