Announcing the NMG Development Programme Associates



We are delighted to announce the NMG Development Programme Associates. Over the next 12 months the cohort will benefit from a slate of activity including mentoring, collaboration and professional development with a focus on interdisciplinary research, redefining collaborative practice and building confidence, as well as sustainability, both artistic and environmental.

The associate cohort will work together and with NMG to shape the Development Programme and its legacy. We met last week for the first time to begin to think about how we can do this!

NMG associates are:

Aisling Ward (@aislingrward), Becky Greensides, Clare West (@clare__west), Faye Rita Robinson (@fr_robinson), Hannah Sarah Day (@hannahsarahday), Ismail Hossen Khokon, Jas Lucas (@jas_lucas_) Melaine Wheeler (@melanieonland), Millie Quick (@millie_quick), Miffy Ryan (@miffyryan), Rhiannon May Rees (@rhiannonmayrose), Roo Dhissou (@roodhissou), Ryan Heath (@ryangjheath_), Sahjan Kooner & Shadia Houssein (@shewasnamedshadia).

The NMG Development Programme (2021-22) will include an expansive programme of free discussions, workshops and activities centred around NMG associates and available to the general public, plus bursary opportunities open to practitioners based in the Midlands. Funded by Arts Council England and supported by a growing number of partners from across the region and beyond.
