Tramshed has a long history of supporting emerging talent in our local area and beyond! Tramshed was born in Plumstead as the Greenwich Young People's Theatre, and has been operating since the 70s. Changing its name to Greenwich and Lewisham Young People's Theatre, or GLYPT for short, the organisation has supported artists such as Bernadine Evaristo & Gary Oldman by providing weekly drama clubs and performances to the local community.
In recent times, we have provided master classes, mentorship, in-kind space and performance opportunities for emerging artists via our emerging artists programme, previously named Progression. Over the last couple of years, you may have seen Tramshed Young Company's production Drylands, Commedia D'ell Arte show La Confusione and the online Digitally Charged Festival (to name just a few).
In March 2022, we are running our very first Found Arts Festival - a space for emerging artists to connect and challenge through seeing, doing, listening, discussing and creating. We have curated the festival to offer emerging artists, many of whom have had a hard time due to covid restrictions, a chance to develop their work and connect with creative companies such as Project Lockout and Created A Monster. Industry professionals will also be offering insights on topics like marketing your work, or applying for funding, which you can find on Days 2 & 3
