Artists are our currency. They light up all we do and give purpose to our business.

Our Artist Development programme focuses on championing exceptional artists, supporting work in development and nurturing the next generation of creatives in Dorset.

Lighthouse is powered by artists and we are proud to be able to work with the most talented and diverse artists we can. By partnering with these artists, we can produce and deliver extraordinary creative experiences to the audiences of the South West.

Lighthouse work with a local, national and international community of artists, offering them support, space and time to flourish. Decisions around partnerships are guided by our strategic aims, our expertise and our desire to build and grow audiences. With an emphasis on supporting emerging talent from the south west and artists from a diverse background, we will continue to nurture, develop and amplify the work of artists from the South West who look to us as their home venue.
