Artist Development & Inside Out

We support our artists and participants to develop their careers by identifying new opportunities to work in collaboration with external artists. We also help to develop their skills both within Heart n Soul and at external events and organisations.

These opportunities have grown, increasing their confidence and connecting us with other dynamic and inspiring artists and organisations.

Here are some of the ways our artists are developing their careers.
