Vamos Emerging Artists Programme

Vamos Emerging Artists

Welcome to the Vamos Emerging Artists programme.

Each year the programme invites inquisitive early career artists from diverse communities across the country to take part in free or subsidised mask taster sessions, learning mask techniques, creating physical character and devising non-verbal theatre that connects and moves audiences. We welcome everyone, and particularly deaf and disabled artists and artists from low socio-economic and/or diverse ethnic backgrounds, to take part.

From these taster workshops, we bring together a group of artists for a residency to create and perform mask theatre from shared stories and backgrounds, finalising in public performances.

Vamos Emerging Artist Programme 2024 has begun and there are a series of taster workshops available for early career artists. The programme will culiminate in a residency at 101 Outdoor Arts (near Newbury) between 10 – 13 July 2024.
