ETT FORGE is a sophisticated and impressive talent development programme that encourages and supports new and emerging producers, artists and companies, who are looking to produce and, crucially, tour their work. The aim is to provide this support when and where it is most needed. There is no prescriptive timetable nor template; each project is bespoke. It may last for 30 minutes or for two years depending upon the scope, scale, demands and existing skill-set pertaining to any one venture. Fundamentally, Forge is all about providing the right help at the right time - be that a brainstorming meeting, practical advice, meeting space, props for a production, a sounding board or reassuring hand to hold.
