Playspace is Starcatchers’ artist development programme for artists committed to working with or developing work for babies and young children.

Through Playspace, we support artists across all artforms at different stages of their careers – from those interested in learning more about working with this age group to those who are experienced and want to develop their practice.

Artists will access:

Artist laboratories led by sector pioneers
Playday workshops
Networking opportunities
Bursaries to attend children’s theatre festivals

*Upcoming opportunities*


Keep up to date with news and opportunities through the Playspace Facebook group!

Request to join here.


“Playspace is an invaluable and essential necessity for all artists to share their practice, connect, collaborate, learn and most of all to have a lot of fun without the pressure of time, space, finances or performance. It felt incredibly good and inspiring to just play with each other and get out of our comfort zone. I just wished Playspace was a weekly thing!”
