Artist Support

Proteus supports a wide range of artists, both in terms of art form and where they are in their individual careers.

From early-career circus performers to established visual artists, Proteus plays a vital role in the development of the artistic community in both Basingstoke and beyond.

Our support takes on many forms. Some examples include: supporting the development of new work through our innovative Performance Lab bursary opportunities, year-long support though our Associate Artist programme and providing affordable studio and event space through Creation Space and other locations within the Borough such as Spring Park House. We also offer numerous paid opportunities and collaborations through our in-house and touring programme.

In addition, we are strong believers in everyday creativity and every person’s artistic potential. We offer a range of diverse creative classes such as regular mixed media art classes to one off creative workshops with visiting artists, and our affiliated community theatre projects such our youth theatre groups and The Proteans.
