Central to our vision is the support and development of emerging artists.

We are home to Kent Dance Network, Confidance who work with Learning Disabled Artists; Animate Arts who specialise in high quality participatory projects with all ages and abilities and Spark Film Production.

Other artists we support with creative space and/or mentoring include AoiEsteban working with Virtual Reality technology, James Wilton, Vinicius Salles, Mischief, Rosie Heafford, as well as several of our graduate companies. We support students and graduates from the University through internships and project opportunities such as Gulbenkian Uncovered.

My company’s work with the Gulbenkian has been some of the most rewarding we have embarked upon.

As a fledgling organisation, with very little funding, the Gulbenkian's generosity and support has been key for our survival - Dani Batchelor, Kent Dance Network
