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.

The core team for the network is:

Alison Gagen (Arts Council England)
Dr. Joslin McKinney (University of Leeds)
Jessica Bowles (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama)
Dr. Paul Geary (Independent)
Paul Warwick (China Plate)
Verity Leigh (Magnetic North)
