Incubate-Propagate is an AHRC-funded research network exploring alternative models for artist development in theatre and performance.

Led by Professor Liz Tomlin (University of Glasgow), the network seeks to broaden the socio-economic diversity of the next generation of theatre, performance and cross-disciplinary artists. The project brings together academics, independent producers and funders to explore how platforms for artist development might be extended to better serve non-graduate emerging artists.
