Talent development has been part of our work since 2017 when we were awarded additional finances as part of our revenue funding to enable several new groups and artists to further their practice. We provided group and individual coaching, management supervision, financial and production support for a number of research and making projects that resulted in études, production development, try-outs, and personal growth for those involved. For the current four-year period we have chosen to focus on two newly formed companies; artist-makers with their own producer, and to integrate this within the Schweigman& company (although without additional funding). Rotor and Francesca Lazzeri will be developing new projects and productions between 2021-2024 in coproduction with Schweigman& and other partners. In this way we see this strand of work as Associate Artists instead of Talent Development.
