The STAMP network is thrilled to present this large-scale event for up to 400 artists to come and meet London venues and organisations and gain an understanding of how they work to support artists and produce new work. The afternoon will feature sessions offering practical and inspiring information about how artists can develop their practice with support of London’s theatre organisations, In Conversation sessions with artists such as Inua Ellams and Kneehigh's Mike Shepherd, discussion panels with representatives of STAMP organisations, and a central ‘marketplace’ in the main Assembly Hall where artists will be able to meet a range of STAMP organisations and learn more about how they work with and support artists.
STAMP is a group of venues and organisations based in London who support and produce new theatre and performance work. STAMP's mission is practical collective action to improve the ways in which artists are supported by our organisations and the industry, and are valued in society more widely.
