WalesLab information


Over the next four years, thanks to significant investment from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, WalesLab will use the nation as a landscape for developing new theatre ideas. The project is open for submissions all year round - to do so you will need to join this group, complete a profile for yourself and use the ideas submission form on the NTW website. You can find that here.

The initiative is split into three strands:


A summer camp for up to twenty theatre makers and artists of varied experience to share ideas, learn form each other and stimulate new collaborations and projects (watch the video below to find out more).

WalesLab projects -

Fertilise:         For around a week small groups will work on the development of a project they have proposed. There will be up to eight Fertilise projects a year, some of which may have an international element.

Germinate:    Three times a year small groups of artists will be offered the opportunity to spend around two weeks somewhere in Wales developing an idea or project which they have already begun working on, and will share their work with a local audience. There will be three Germinate projects a year, one of which will have an international element.



For more information on WalesLab can be found in this group.
