Talent Development

Square Route is Square Chapel’s talent development programme, providing opportunities and support for artists, companies and creatives at various stages of their career, based in West Yorkshire and beyond. The programme is broken up into four strands: Connect, Present, Evolve and Create; with the aim to provide our creative community with the networks, platforms, residency and commissioning opportunities that are needed to grow a thriving cultural ecology for Halifax.

Please note, due to limited resource, there are currently no Scratch Nights planned and we are now fully committed with artistic residencies until March 2020. Unfortunately, we don’t have capacity to respond to unsolicited approaches or discuss proposals in person with artists/companies we are not already supporting. If you have a show ready to tour, please send details to programming@squarechapel.co.uk. If you’re inviting us to see your work, please give as much notice as possible, but note we are a small team so are unable to attend everything.

In the meantime, sign up here to be the first to know about talent development-related news and opportunities from Square Chapel and beyond.

Square Chapel is a proud member of the Venues North network which provides programming and talent development opportunities for artists and companies across the North of England. For more information, download Routes In – A guide to getting new work programmed in the North of England
