The city is brimming with artists creating new and exciting work, and whether you are still honing your craft or a seasoned professional, everyone needs a space to test out ideas.  Enter Emergency!, a platform for showcasing new and emerging artists.

So how does it work?

Once a month we hold our Emergency! scratch nights.  Each artist gets a fifteen minute slot followed by a chat with the audience for questions and feedback.  Then once a year we bring together a collection of highlights for Emergency! Presents, a developed performance in our main auditorium.

Scratch performances are free to attend and open to all.  If you would like to be involved, come along to one of the nights and chat to our team, or pop us an email!
