Artist Development

Thrive Surgeries


Fri 7 Feb




1 hour



Looking for some advice on how to develop a project? Need pointers on training courses? Need help writing a funding bid?

If so, sign up for one of our Thrive Surgeries – designed to help you move things forward. Dan Baker, Barbican Theatre’s Creative Producer, will be available to to give you advice – this is also the chance for you to tell us more about yourself.

Your surgery lasts for one hour, and is just for you – you don’t share the time with anyone else. Book a slot, and we’ll be in touch to find out what you’d like to discuss!

Thrive is Barbican Theatre’s programme of support for local, new and emerging artists. Our Thrive programme would not be possible without the support of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.


Surgeries will take place at Barbican Theatre - please wait in the B-Bar when you arrive, and a member of staff will come to meet you when we are ready.

Please be sure to arrive at least ten minutes before your scheduled time, to reduce the risk of surgeries running over - we hold a number of surgeries per day, and want to ensure everyone gets the full hour offered.

Once your slot is booked we will contact you to ask some questions about what you wish to discuss - you should hear from us no later than a week before your surgery.

If you have booked a Thrive Surgery and can no longer make it, then please email so we can make your slot available to someone else.
