Studio Nouveau is free studio space at NDT Broadgate for Black and Global Majority-led organisations or independent artists with Black and Global Majority team. We aim to fill the space with artists that are creating thought provoking, challenging and culturally inclusive work. From our past experiences of working in unsafe spaces, we are actively working towards ensuring our artists are safe and able to create their best work. At the moment we are prioritising early career artists or emerging organisations, as we know firsthand how difficult it is get started. Established artists and companies, pleased don't be put off by this! We still want to hear from you.
NDT Broadgate is part of New Diorama Theatre's Artist Reset Programme, it's a rehearsal and artist development space for independent artists and organisations. NDT Broadgate has been possible thanks to New Diorama Theatre and British Land, in partnership with City of London, and generously supported by Arts Council England, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Jerwood Arts and Theatre Deli.
