Profiles provides a first point of contact with the professional environment, and nurtures the next generation of creatives, including artists, designers, producers, film makers and writers. For the artists that we work with, Profiles is the first stage of our collaboration process.

Previous Profiles: Hannah Treadaway, a brilliant young emerging young director and writer worked with Lighthouse to develop her play Tides. We offered seed money to develop her idea, leading to a commission and connected her to Paines Plough. Previously we have commissioned Wet Picnic with Suitcases and Phoebe McIntosh with her play Dominoes that toured in the region.

Current Profiles: Live and Unheard, Olly Olson (music artists), Sisata (emerging theatre), Portal: New Writing Collective (emerging script writers).
