Incubate14 is subsidised producer support programme delivered by Dep Arts Ltd in partnership with ARC in Stockton. Three artists/companies were selected in March 2014 to receive a year’s worth of subsidised support from Dep Arts and ARC.

Selected artists/companies for 2014/15 are:

• Middle Child – a company that challenges traditional theatre conventions and are passionate about making work for audiences that dance and drink, talk and text, and are loud and demanding.

• Ira Brand – Ira is an artist, performance-maker and writer, working across theatre and live art. Her work is humorous, evocative, intimate, often participatory and always accessible.

• Clerkinworks – the company from theatre-maker, actor and writer Angela Clerkin.
