Artist Surgeries


Ask Us Anything

Fancy a free coffee and a chat? New Diorama's open Artist Surgeries are back.

As we slowly emerge from lockdowns, we're getting more emails and calls than ever before from artists wanting advice, conversations or just a second opinion on their next steps.

With avenues for support for artists feeling more and more limited these surgeries are a chance for anyone to come and meet Team NDT, and discuss anything that's on your mind! Ideally once a month, we'll open our doors to anyone outside our current artist support programmes to come in for a chat.

Topics could include producing, fundraising, marketing, career trajectory, cat herding, mind reading, and more - anything where a 20-minute chat with our team might genuinely help or provide a useful sounding board. It may be useful to keep in mind that we are a companies theatre and are best positioned to advise artists working or aspiring to work in this way. 

Slots are in-person at the New Diorama Theatre Café (15-16 Triton Street, London NW1 3BF), and coffee is on us!

How It Works

Slots are first-come, first-served and the booking portal will open two weeks in advance of each surgery date (listed below). There is no formal application process - you simply need to tell us your name, email and 1-2 lines about what you're hoping to discuss.

Please keep in mind that these surgeries are best geared toward single topics or a contained set of questions. We are unable to read or watch any materials in advance or feedback on your work during the chat. 

Upcoming Dates

Once you've booked, you'll receive an email confirmation. A member of NDT staff will then be in touch closer to the day to confirm which staff member you'll meet.
